LESSONS OF THE WIND
Things nature teaches.
For the last seven months, I have been looking at the wind and waters of Lake Michigan. This is because my summer in Northern Michigan started early and has been extended into the fall. Instead of Memorial Day to Labor Day, this year’s stay began in early May and will last till Thanksgiving. This change in routine is the result of COVID-19.
The water I have been watching daily, even when storm-tossed, carries with it the promise of calm if we stay the course. Explaining the lesson provided by the water, a friend said, “Whenever I look, there is something new and different in the seascape as it is sculpted by wind. There is a time to enjoy and a time for caution. But no matter how strong the wind and wild the sea, it will return, in time, to perfect calm—peace.”
