Yearning

It's dawned on me that I do not belong where I live. I'm like a stranger in a foreign land. It's not time to leave yet, but one day - when we do leave - I need to live near water.


As a kid, our parents used to take us different places for summer vacations - Jersey shore, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire. Each summer a different spot for a week. We would rent a little cabin and explore.



One of my favorite spots - ever - was Squam Lake in New Hampshire. I read about Squam Lake on other blogs, because the Squam Art Workshops are held there every year. One Day.....



If you ever saw the movie - On Golden Pond - it was filmed there.



I remember a family photo of myself - as a pensive 11 year old - sitting at the edge of a dock. I wonder where that picture is?



In the meantime, please enjoy these pics of Squam Lake -

Simply stunning. I know how you feel about the water. I love it so and feel like a different person when I am near it.

I am soooo with you. We are headed to the Southern Oregon Coast to live, sometime in our future!
