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.
