It Was A Dark And Stormy Night

Well-it was actually a day
but, like Snoopy,
I always wanted to
start a story with that line.

I was raised in the
mountains but
ALWAYS
had a longing to
be BY the water.

I am one of those
very strange people..
I LOVE to be
CLOSE TO
the water
but
I don't like to
be
OFFSHORE ON
the water.

AND
I love a good
STORM-
Now I am not talking
hurricane or tornado
type storms..
nope-just a
plain good old storm.

We had a boat that
we used as a live-aboard
during summers.
We rarely took it off
the dock
which was fine for me.
Because?
Have you been paying attention?
Because....
I was ON the water
but not
OUT IN
the water.

Anyway~
Our first little house was
by the water...
and then we moved
various places over
the years.
and finally..
finally...
came back to the water.
Today
when I look out my
window I can see
the Bay of Green Bay.

One of my favorite things
to see is a storm
moving in from the West.

The waves kick up.

You can see the rain coming
across the water..

Moving closer...

The trees bending
in the wind.

The playhouse flag
blown off the flagpole
and landing in the bushes..

Ahh..yes a storm that
passes and leaves
the early night sky
looking like this.

Another storm
weathered.
Amen

  10. You live in a beautiful place even with a storm. I feel the same way. I would love to live where I can see water but not too close. I would hate to have to be evacuated when there is a hurricane. I also love the mountains.

  17. Ah, well one more thing you and "her" have in common - the love of a good storm on the water. Yep, LOVES a storm coming off the ocean waters. No longer living by the ocean and married to someone who does not like the ocean much, well "she" tries to content "herself" with loving a good inland storm. Not the same, but you know, one must be happy with where they are. Anyway, off track there....the love of a good storm on the water....yep, serious questions here from me..... like are the two of you nuts?!?!!?

    Purrs from under the table,

  18. I like storms, too! I like getting in the jeep and chasing tornados, but can never seem to get a good picture due to the jerkiness of the jeep and my husband's driving. Once I canpture the perfect shot, though.... the chase will have ended.... and the chase is half of fun!

  19. I think stormy evenings are romantic!

  20. I would love to visit you and watch one of those storms roll in. I have always enjoyed stormy weather too. I love to stand outdoors when the wind kicks up good and strong. When I was little I thought I would be able to fly. Now, it would take one @#$$%^@# of a storm to get me off the ground!
    I have my links fixed finally. Now I want to remodel my header and buttons.

    Your view is crazy gorgeous girl!
    Hugs

(I hesitate to use the term "Our Land" and instead use the terminology "the Land" because I believe the issue is not who holds deed to the land, but instead the issue is land "ownership" at all)It was not surprising to see the non-Indigenous media front and center, their white privilege meriting their place, while the Indigenous media sat in the rear.
