My place in the world is with my Family surrounded by Nature!
Where ever that place happens to be:
Looking at a late April Snowstorm against a blue sky from our Wisconsin Home (2018),
in Bermuda on Horseshoe Bay Beach at Dusk with the love of my life’s hand on my shoulder looking at a dusky sunset, pink sand beach, and turquoise waters in late summer – just as we have looked at this same view three times before (1987, 2007, 2017),
in a school garden while kids are in class, the caretaker of beauty and knowledge awaits on this path (2018),
looking down at a beach from above on a narrow, muddied jungle path, a view holds the dangerous waters and those who dare to swim but might not last (2013).
on the many Florida beaches over the years we visited as one, collecting memories as well as the shells we all saved for none
hearing the roar of waterfalls be it Niagara, Kauai, Buffalo Creek, or Angel Falls (RMNP). Water connects our place in the world (1985, 1986, 1990, 2004, 2010, 2013). I’ve realized through looking back,
from a spot in my yard to a Great Lake I once knew,
a cabin I love built in the woods where the wild loons call. Yes, I’ve realized today,
there is a place in this world, a place for us all. Favorite, I have none, with my family I’ll stay, traveling to store memories all along the way. This life’s been a good one, great in fact, I am at home where I go as long as that is where my family’s at.
So, whether it’s a stay in D.C. or the Nederlands far, a trip to Jersey over that world-famous bridge, the sunrise on Haleakala or to hear the wild La Jolla sea lions call, the place doesn’t matter for I find awe in them all. As long as my family is with me, I know I belong.
