When I arrived back here in Duluth 13 years past, the quarterly shift in my surrounding landscape provided me with a lens for reflection. Each opportunity allowing me to identify with a new burgeoning season. Recalling the crisp newness of the prior season while bedding down its passing coincidentally excites and calms me. The waters of Lake Superior, alone, transform hourly, daily, seasonally and fill us all with pensive wonder for its vastness. A continued sense of gratitude, tranquility and joy lays in this peaceful area we call home.
