Inspiration often hits when you are not looking for it. I spent some time at my parent’s place, in the middle of nowhere some might say, but I think it is in the middle of somewhere wonderful, on a lake, surrounded by trees, with no neighbors.
There was still ice on the bay, so a morning walk around the island as the sun came up was in order before the snow got too soft. After that, when the birds saw I was having a coffee on the deck, they let me know that it was time for their morning toast.
Yeah, that’s the middle of somewhere . . .
