Rain on the Roof

This is the view looking up through the cabin hatch cover on our sailboat during the rain. I was intrigued by the monochrome texture of the drops pooling on the thick glass. Looking at it now, it calls up the cozy feeling of being in that small space with water in all directions, but dry and warm inside.

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.
