This past Saturday, August 3, was a gorgeous day to be in Michigan on a lake, sharing fond memories of absent loved ones, joining hearts and hands in fellowship for just the briefest of moments.
Thanks to Jen Galloway, Ruth Quackenbush and Donna Kallemyn for orchestrating the event!
Oh, and don't look for any systematic organization to how the photos are posted here -- there isn't one. I prefer letting your eyes float over each image savoring the moment. The reunion was centered on a time for sharing stories to be sure but for me it was all about just being together. Of course, let's not overlook the possibility that I'm simply too lazy to arrange them in some semblance of order.
And since I'm so sketchy on matching names with some of the faces, I let that one alone as well.
