A Trip Up the East Coast of America


 

It has been a very long week here. Not bad, just full of hassles and things not going quite the way I had hoped.  I found this video and a friend of mine has made the trip several times. I have been to different sections of the Intracoastal Waterway. So I have included two of my own photographs. It is very pretty and some day I would love to make the entire trip.

 

So in honor of all of us who need a minute of relaxation and to see the beauty of Mother Earth, may I present…

    “Blessed sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain,

                                spirit of the garden,

                                 Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood

                                 Teach us to care and not to care

                                  Teach us to sit still

                                   Even among these rocks

                                   Sister, mother,

                                   And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,

                                   Suffer me not to be separated

                                   And let me cry come unto Thee.”

                                                                     —T. S. Eliot
