The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a person’s  heart. One must imagine Sisyphus happy.

Albert Camus

Nature Never Did Betray the Heart that Loved Her

Nature never did betray the heart that loved her.

William Wordsworth

This peaceful woods is less than an hour’s drive from the clamor of Detroit, a safe harbor amidst the sturm und drang of urban life  and a monument to the foresight of the person who  preserved a verdant  island of Nature about 100 years ago.

Light Shines in the Darkness

Along the banks of the Au Sable River, there are places where the trees escaped the logger’s saw, and so as the decades passed they grew to full height. Now, even on the sunniest of summer afternoons, their high branches shelter the forest floor, so the light is always muted and high noon seems like dusk. Except in those few spaces where the canopy has a gap and the sunlight pours down.
