Dock Chair Of Solitude

If, like me, you are an early riser, you are used to moving around in the dim, dark, pre-dawn hours.  Those moments often offer the early bird a special solitude, and an unmatched opportunity for quiet, rewarding contemplation.

When you are in a remote place, like Lake Temagami, the sense of peaceful tranquility found in these early morning hours is multiplied tenfold.  A casually placed canvas chair on a dock becomes an irresistible perch where you can drink in the pure air, admire the crystalline sliver of the crescent moon far above, and watch the sky gradually turn from black, to charcoal, to deep blue.

I used that perch, and I thought no great thoughts on this quiet morning — but I did come away with a wonderful and satisfying sense of inner calm.
