Cure for Boredom

The amiable  sunshine invites you to indulge your curiosity and explore Michigan’s  woodland trails.

Shadow of a Divine Perfection

The true work of art is but the shadow of a divine perfection.

—Michelangelo

On this day in 1512, the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel was opened to the public for the first time.

Several years later, I took this photo at one of my favorite haunts, Iargo Springs in the Huron National Forest, Michigan

Pass Over a Provocation

The discretion of a person defers his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a provocation.

–Proverbs 19

I needed a reminder of this proverb  today and a reminder of summer sunsets as Michigan heads into the grays of November.  Of course, it’s always something to keep in mind on social media.

Where Dusk is a Sheltering Cloak

The long day wanes: the slow moon climbs:
Come, my friends,
‘T is not too late to seek a newer world.
–Alfred Tennyson, Ulysses

On the shore of  a Northern lake, the lingering dusk is a sheltering cloak, an invitation
to contemplation.

Subtle Something that Renews the Spirit

It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’s hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit.
–Robert Louis Stevenson
