In the Presence of Wonder

Always be on the lookout for the presence of wonder.
 -E.B. White

On our drive across the highways of Michigan, the storms raged and the rains poured, but at the end, there was peace and beauty and color. And I was glad that I was alive. 

Love from the wilds!

Quiet Sleep and a Sweet Dream

Sea Fever
by John Masefield
I MUST go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a gray mist on the sea's face, and a gray dawn breaking.
I must down go to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.
I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.

 There was a whole caravan of army vehicles driving down the highway as far as the eye could see- different shapes, color sand sizes. It was an impressive sight to behold.
