Summer, Again

“It is summer again,” this Michigan brook whispers as it passes by you and disappears around the bend.


Summertime Dream

While with an eye made quiet by the power
Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
We see into the life of things.

–William Wordsworth, Lines Composed a Few Miles Above Tintern Abbey

Like millions of other Americans, I hit the road this 4th of July weekend in search of…and found this tranquil cove along the Au Sable River in northern Michigan.  When I was a boy, my grandfather would take me to this secluded locale on summer vacations.   I can still feel his presence during my re-visits.
