a little summer break

In early July, the engineer and I spend a few quiet days in a cabin on a lake up in Ontario.  A few tranquil moments here.  It was a beautiful week, warm and breezy.  With a few books and a few bathing suits, we settled into an easy routine of a morning swim around the island, breakfast, reading, napping, boating and snacking.   It was a time to regather and sit in contemplation, to both grieve for a recent loss and treasure what we do have.
