Canoeing 21 September 2007

Today, Frank and I took a short break from all the work weve been doing in order to go canoeing on the lake. The weather has been ideal lately and today was no exception,

We saw some early signs of autumn (not really that early, since the first day of autumn falls on the 23rd of September this year). Among the wildflowers growing along the lakeshore there were golden rod, spotted touch-me-not (aka jewelweed), and New England aster, which is one of my favorites that I look for as a harbinger of autumn. Here and there we also saw some tree foliage starting to change color.

As Ive mentioned before, one of the reasons I love this area is the change of seasons.

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
