What a couple of weeks it has been! A dear and talented neighbor/friend who was a genuinely careful and experienced motorcyclist had a car turn in front of him unexpectedly. In spite of modern medical surgical miracles, he passed away as a result of his injuries. Please watch out for bikers ~ both pedal and motor. Thankfully, during this sad time, I have had my granddaughter's corgi ~ the middle dog ~ to baby sit. He gets along really well with my two dogs and there hasn't been a dull moment... a good distraction.
During a recent morning I heard the old-fashioned sound of a single engine airplane motor. It was still and quiet with the lake like glass.... a perfect day to practice take-offs and landings. And that is exactly what this little yellow sea plane did for a couple of hours. I grabbed a cup of coffee and headed to the "thinking" bench by the shore and watched for quite a long while. Hence, the tranquility I was looking for.
