Sometimes when it is still...

Nick on Seagull Lake, BWCA, Aug. 2009

An excerpt:

     Sometimes when it is still, so still you can hear the swish of a butterfly's wing -- sometimes when it is that still I take the canoe out on the edge of the lake.  One stroke of the paddle and we are gone, the canoe and me, moving silently.

Going out on a lake in the canoe -- one of my favorite things to do on a still summer's day!
