…You Have But Slumbered Here

If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended,
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.

William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream

These lines from Midsummer Night’s Dream reminded me of this  gathering twilight of  a summer past.   On warm, humid July evenings, this lake in the midst of suburban Detroit becomes a social spot where people come to fish, canoe, strum guitars, or just watch the stars come out.

William Shakespeare was born in 1564 and traditionally this is the date for celebrating his birth.

      and this lake is only about 10 miles away, in western Wayne County. quite a tranquil spot on a summer evening where there is often a small group of people strumming their guitars
