Towering monuments of civilization and wilderness.
Whenever the light of civilization falls upon you with a blighting power . . .
go to the wilderness.
Dull business routine, the fierce passions of the market place, the perils of envious
cities become but a memory . . .
The wilderness will take hold of you. It will give you good red blood . . .
You will soon behold all with a peaceful soul.
George S. Evans
Photo Notes, etc.
Top photo is a view of downtown Ottawa. If you follow the freeway to the S-curve, you will see the thin spire of the Peace Tower next to the dome of Canada’s Parliament building. Taken in August 2005.
The 2nd photo shows local mountains watching over a peaceful lake on Northern Vancouver Island , near where Francis and I live. Taken last week – March 27 , 2013.
If you haven’t yet checked out Francis’ blog, Disappearing in Plain Sight, click here for a recent sample – The Characterization of a Blog – it’s a unique perspective on blogging. At the bottom of her post is a rare view of our cabin from the lake. Check it out.
