This article that has been sitting around here for quite a while now, in part because articles from the Wall Street Journal usually require one to log in, is in fact now very timely on this late warm evening. It’s about a gentleman who proposes to sit on his dock for an entire day and watch the day go by.
As I read it, I realized it’s very similar to our family cabin up north, where the kids and I are presently planning to go in a couple of weeks. The most familiar of the players in this story are the loons, one of our neighbors on the lake. It doesn’t hurt that this article doesn’t require one to log in either.
The article is entitled “Every Chirp You Make, I’ll Be Watching You: In nature, something’s always happening” by Ned Crabb. I can’t wait to get going. Some things are just meant to be.
