Reflections on Squam: I dreamed a dream...

… of a place where I could sit on a rocking chair,
on an old wooden deck,
looking out over the stillness of a lake

... where I could think

… listen

… soak in nature

... create

… dive in*
*literally, at 5am. It was icy but I felt so ALIVE

I found that place at Squam Lake, New Hampshire, with a warm family of old and new journeymates.

Thank you friends, for opening your hearts and sharing your laughter

It was a most precious time
