Get your camera and two dogs
And walk down to the lake.
Admire the sunset with boats.
Turn away for a few seconds,
Allowing your furry friends to get into the photo.

Misty curtains part,
Dawn appears through the cracks
With fingers of light.
Time to stop and gaze in wonder;
And let the busy pause.

Every year, a replica of a Viking boat
Suddenly appears on our lake.
It looked very pretty
As it rested in the sunlight.
A man and his son make the boats by hand
And sail them too – even as far away as to Finland and Russia (from Sweden).
I love the weathered look of the wood
And those cool dragon-shaped oarlocks.
The heavy wooden oars and the mast
Are stored in the boat for safekeeping.
And – yes! – that’s Oscar checking the boat out.

Nothing much has been happening,
But as I look back at some summer memories
I realize that moments when we have taken the time to pause,
To enjoy, to reflect and to learn —
These are the moments that make up our lives.
Life is for learning – but one’s learning must then be lived. Yusuf/Cat Stevens

I walked down a leafy forgotten path when I suddenly spied some boats washed up on the shore. Colours fading, lying there overlooked…
… like cast-offs or children’s toys loved and then left.
It struck me that – sometimes – boats are like people.
We might neglect them; only see the outer shell of flaking paint; forget how once those colours glowed and how they carried us across troubled waters.
What do you see when you look at that boat, that person?
Neglected, abandoned; the beauty gone? Or can you go beyond that to see the jewel that is still there, the beauty and serenity?
Look deep, my friends – because what you really see is your own reflection.
