Aloneness In Leelanau


Sunset  At  Empire  Beach


The remote hills and valleys of this land,

Nearly surrounded as they are by water,

And home to a relatively few people,

Make it very easy in Leelanau ...

To be alone.

But to be alone, is not to be lonely.

Whereas loneliness is a painful emptiness,

Aloneness is a joyful fullness.

When you are alone, ...

Especially in this sacred place ...

Of sand and surf,

Of wind and woods, ...

Your presence is enough.

No one else is needed.

So, ...

"Don't let me be lonely" in Leelanau, ...

But leave me alone.


See You In Leelanau Up North,
Chris


                    Visit A Leelanau Landmark:  Lacore Trail to Lake Michigan - A
                    little known path through the woods ending atop a sandy bluff
                    beside the big lake.  Follow Lacore Street north of Empire until
                    it turns east into Voice Road.  Look for the small National Park
                    Service marker on the left at the trail head.  Keep it secret.
