We have been hunkered down in Frankfort for the past couple of days. The wind on Lake Michigan kept us here an extra night which means today we will go over 60 miles (an 8 hour travel day for us), to get to Ludington. The goal is to get to Chicago as soon as we safely can and to appreciate every moment along the way. In the meantime, David continues to troubleshoot generator issues and will likely seek a mechanic for Monday. The generator allows us to anchor out and keep our batteries charged and expands the possibilities of places we can stay, away from marinas. 🤞🏽
Frankfort Harbor is accessed through a sizable breakwater, up the Betsie River on Lake Betsie. It is the first place we have stayed that has big hills along the shoreline and even though we are heading south, we have had our coldest day yet; 52 degrees this morning. Its also dark in the morning now which always reminds us it is Fall 🎃 From our slip we can see the waves crashing over the outer wall.
I have a friend in my Spirit Led community, Carol Morgan, who hosted a conversation yesterday about the process of Breaking Free. As in, intentionally becoming congruent in how we live our lives. David and I were processing later, over dinner, and we conclude again that we are so incredibly blessed to be “here”. What a joy it is to create the life you want, by deciding in every now moment, to choose presence and appreciation for whatever comes our way. This world is a tough school, and there is a lot to learn! Living the life that you consciously create, is the best classroom. Our curriculum is nature, rest, good food, solitude, moving the body, moving the boat, meditation, and love.
may the tide that is entering even now the lip of our understanding carry you out beyond the face of fear may you kiss the wind then turn from it certain that it will love your back may you open your eyes to water water waving forever and may you in your innocence sail through this to that by Lucille Clifton
Wishing y’all a wonderful day wherever you are 🌊
I love your words! I love you.
Godspeed dear ones! In the practice of being present to the life that’s here in this moment, your journey is chock full of precious teachings for the rest of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your beautiful articulations of the experience. 🙏❤️❤️❤️
Love to you, always. Xoxoxo
