This is a blog for those who have spent time in and around the great inland seas of North America. Known to many geographically as the Great Lakes. The big-sweet-water fresh lakes that many visit and are nourished by, but few call home.
The spirit of these vast expanses of water call to some in such a visceral way that it literally becomes a part of their élan vital. The wilderness that surrounds, and in essence is this water, has it’s own voice that finds it’s way into us. Like the slow gentle flow of a river that over thousands of years can shape the landscape, this wild spirit creates canyons in the soul that do not leave absence but rather a vacuum of abundance.
If you have ever sat along the shore and watched the sunrise surrounded by solitude, or experienced the blossom of the Auroral lights that stretch down from the night sky and wrap around our imaginations, then you have most likely been touched by the wild spirit of these inland seas. It grows in and with you and becomes a quiet part of who you are and who you are always becoming. It is both a call and response that encircles and erodes the arbitrary boundaries we sometimes call our internal and external worlds.
The inland sea life is always a dynamic flow of becoming that passes to us and from us as artistic inspiration, spiritual clarity, quiet appreciate of the now that is always knocking at our consciousness. Whether you experience this in the power of the raging sea on a stormy day, or on the still calm surface reflections that gently blend sea and sky, it is my hope that you will find an echo of that spirit shared here.
