Queen of The Canoe

Queen of The Canoe

Now that I am older, I have a renewed appreciation for life. I am questioning the perspectives of more senior people. Some of my questions are, how did I get here so fast, what needs to be done, will I have any regrets, and what is most important now?  Usually, I ask these questions to my greatest mentor.

We paddle to the middle of the lake and I ask divine questions, get her perspective, and listen intently.

    I think everyone needs to spend time once a year in the canoe with a mentor like your mom, or by themselves, answering those same questions and more. As I am getting older I search for that lake which has become the world around me and I am my own canoe.

    Thanks Suzie for reminding me, I hear the loons calling.

    Best, me
