Coming Home

SunsetBoatMy husband is a sailor; I’m not. On lazy summer days he takes Counterpoint, his 35-foot Jeanneau, out on Lake Ontario while I enjoy the breeze in the gazebo with my iced tea, a book, and a laptop. I’m an introvert, and time spent by myself is a great pleasure. But at the end of the day I also love coming back together again with my husband to share dinner and talk about the day. This image of Counterpoint sailing back to harbor with the sunset at her stern reflects both of those joys: solitude and togetherness.
