Lady of the Lake

Sunday found us gathered at Damariscotta Lake surrounded by family, friends, food and perfect summer weather. Richard's brother, Gregg and wife Lisa are vacationing here for the week with their boys Jackson and Jake, and invited everyone to join them for a day at the lake... THANK YOU for sharing your beautiful cottage!
Spending time with Richard's family is one very interesting way to get to really know him. Watching interactions, listening to conversations, observing facial expressions... all are glimpses into his soul, clues that help me gain better understanding if not acceptance. We are all of us a fine mixture of our parents, their parents, and generations gone by... all blended with our own lifetime of experiences. What a mystery, with so many clues! Another fun and interesting observation is to watch all of the above as it begins to unfold in the development of the next generation. Life... how exciting, mysterious, fun and absolutely grand!
Lady of the Lake, in different versions, can be found in the Portland Collection and Phillips Collection of Traditional American Fiddle Tunes.

OMG, you analyze too much and take the fun out of life and just being!

next time i hang out with raj's family i'm going to try to look at them the way you're looking at richard's. i tend to get annoyed...but i think looking at them as mystery, as pieces of raj, could help tensions levels.

when i think of people who take the fun out of life, i don't think of you, and your gorgeous pictures and your calm.

Analyzing things, for me, is part of the joy of living... and of being...
