there and back again...

Driving from Chicago to Toronto to Chicago. 

Looking at these pictures it's as if the water was 
with me. Leaving Chicago, driving along it's
Lake Michigan. As soon as I'm out of the city 
I'm followed by ominous clouds all the way to 
Toronto, the lake is with me, contained in a cloud. 

10 hours later, reaching Toronto, the clouds let loose, 
and the lake comes pouring down on the city. 

A week later on leaving, I take the most amazing 
wrong turn towards Niagara Falls, and the road 
opens up to Lake Ontario. Early morning Lake Ontario... 
wind, birds, bright sun. Good bye Toronto! 

Drive, drive, drive and 5 hours later I'm crossing 
Lake Huron, onto the island, United States. 

Back on dry land… for now.

when the soul lies down in that grass...

Untitled by Tammy N.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing 
there is a field. I will meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass, the world 
is too full to talk about. Ideas, language, 
even the phrase each other doesn’t make any sense.
— Rumi
