Photo Challenge, Transmogrify: Autumn’s Magical Transformation

I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.
—Anne of Green Gables

Nothing quite like a Michigan autumn to transform a lakeside scene in a magical manner.

Photo Challenge, Shine: To Sail Beyond the Sunset

Come, my friends,
‘T is not too late to seek a newer world.

Push off, and sitting well in order smite
The sounding furrows; for my purpose holds
To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths
Of all the western stars.

Alfred Lord Tennyson, Ulysses

Photo Challenge, Local: The Treasure Chest of Living

There is a local park that I often visit, in all four of Michigan’s seasons.   As “the home should be the treasure chest of living,” I have received many gifts among these woods and lakes on sunlight-dappled afternoons.

And what would a home-away-from-home be without friends and acquaintances?
