Spring Session Squam
knit, spin, sew, embroider
re-invent and PLAY…
Lovely, thoughtful cabin mates,
the good food, the gorgeous
cabin hanging over Squam Lake
and swimming, yes swimming in
the chilly waters at the end of the
long day, de-frazzling the brain cells
and waking up the body.
A little rain, a little thunder,
warm early summer sun,
laying on the dock, hearing
a barn owl, bullfrogs, twelve brown
and yellow baby ducks quacking
some coyotes singing,
and the haunting call of the loon.
Candace was overwhelmed,
Corrine was too, again. So much
learned, so much to begin to learn,
so much to think about and digest.
A new cabin for
seven, hanging over the
lake with a front porch
and expansive views.
Candace chilling on the screen porch,
a little wave to say Hi!
First views from the porch, clouds in the distance
rolling across the mountains. Green, green, green
and the dark blue of clear water right down to the rocky
bed nine feet below.
Candace and I sharing coffee in the dining hall
after dinner. Both smiling, both content! A shy cabin mate
next to me obscured by her water! A newspaper
editor who would be appalled at my lack of grammar
skills, but I don’t think she would really mind! The big
Craftside sign in the background. Yes, those incredible
recycled blank journals again.
Squamaliscious indeed. More tomorrow…
