“I come into the presence of still water.” -Wendell Berry, The Peace of Wild Things

I’m grateful for water.

There’s no water element in my astrological chart. To be honest, I don’t know what that means, but I interpret it to relate to not being a go-with-the-flow kind of person. Extra earth, extra air, extra fire, yes – but no water.

So maybe that is why I always seek the water. When I walk the dog, I take her to the creek. When I travel, I make sure water – big water, like Lake Superior, pictured above – is part of the adventure. When I stand at the side of the water, I can always see light.
