Lake Superior Spirit is kayaking off in a slightly different direction for the month of August. Instead of paddling to the north in the blogging world, we’re veering to the south.
Instead of telling funny stories and exciting tales and humorous escapades, I am going to announce a theme for this month of harvesting thimberries and tomatoes and cucumbers.
The theme for the month of August shall be peace and simplicity.
I invite you to join me in embracing these qualities in your own life. May all who visit this blog be blessed with a little more peace, a little more quiet, a deep inner calm. May our inner garden harvests be abundant and enough to nourish all the hungry places within.
I spent the day sorting through closets, old piles of papers, basement nooks and crannies. Throwing away. Recycling. Accumulating hefty piles to bring to our local St. Vincent de Paul store.
Thinking about life. Thinking about this blog. Pondering what wants to change directions; what wants to express things differently. I believe we have many different voices within us. I have a quieter, simpler voice which is longing to be heard.
So this voice shall be invited forth in August. That which sings a slightly different song. That which paddles south instead of north. That which stands barefoot under the August moon listening to the slow and distant hoot of the owl. Or the pawing of deer hooves at dawn.
Peace to all of you…
