As we prepare for daughter Paige’s graduation and attendant celebrations and are busy with home, yard, and work projects, blog posts will be light this week. I’ll use the opportunity to take advantage of the wonderful www and point you to a few terrific recent links from the Great Lakes Gazette blogroll:
– Graham Kozak’s Blog: Our very own son comments on the recent power outage in the City of Detroit on his site and at The Michigan View, the “political commentary hot spot” of The Detroit News, where since April he has been posting his opinion at The Watercooler.
-Adventures of an Innkeeper, the blog by Iris, owner of the Wayfarer Lodgings (which I hope to visit someday soon) in beautiful Frankfort, Michigan, alerts us to the upcoming visit July 28-31 to her fair port by the Tall Ship Lynx, the replica War of 1812 clipper schooner. The 122-foot square top sail vessel was used to train the cast and crew of Pirates of the Caribbean. There will be public ship tours and two-hour sails.
-Introducing MojoTraveler, following the adventures of Diana Lambdin Meyer who says mojo is “a synonym for attitude, spirit, energy and creativity,” something she finds in every trip.
–Living Arrows, the June 2 post by Lori Erickson at her site Spiritual Travels. Lori beautifully captures the emotions that a parent with a high school graduate feels as that child—especially the youngest child— continues on the path to adulthood that began some 18 years ago. Pass the tissues, please.
