Trip Up North in Photos (Part 2)

 My husband really wanted me to wear this head piece to protect myself from the ravenous mosquitoes, but I declined.  I only allowed enough time to take a photo.  

 This is a wilted version of the Minnesota state flower:  The Pink Lady Slipper.

 My husband caught a snake on our hike through the woods.  

 Are eagles and ravens friends?  They seemed to be for the moment we saw them together on these branches.

 Do you see that rainbow?  It was an amazing phenomenon.  

 The is the bridge in Duluth, Minnesota that leads to Park Point.

 Don't you just love this business card?  I sure do.

 Pictured here are hand woven hammocks being sold at the Art Fair at Park Point, near Duluth, Minnesota last weekend.
 I fell in love with the art of Tatiana Oles.  One of the items I purchased from her might show up in some future projects I have up  my sleeve.

No Radio

During the week, I have a fairly long commute to and from work.  Sometimes I listen to a book on cd.  Sometimes I listen to my ipod.  Most of the time I listen to the radio.  I am usually tuned into 89.3 The Current because the DJ's are great and the music isn't so bad, either.  
Tonight I tried the radio, but I had to turn it off. It wasn't because the music sucked, or because I was on the phone while driving.  
It was because I had a lot of thinking to do.  My mind was preoccupied with questions about my life, my future, and possible decisions to make.  The message that kept coming up the most was that I have to find my joy.  What brings me joy?  What makes me feel happy and inspired?  
Sometimes that seems like an easy question to answer, other times, it's a mystery.  
Maybe I'll have to make the commute in silence all week long, just to see if my inner, wise voice will make itself loud and clear for me to hear.

Weekend Up North in Photos Part 1

The weekend was full of fishing, camping, canoeing, rock skipping, art gallery viewing, and communing with THE NATURE.  How did you spend your weekend?
