Tossing Pebbles in the Stream

This blog is my place to sit and toss pebbles into the stream. The stream of Life relentlessly passing before us. We can affect it little. For the most part I just watch it passing and follow the flow. Occasionally, I need to comment on its passing, tossing a pebble at it to enjoy the ripple affect upon Life's surface.

Down by the Riverside

A place to sit and let the stream of life move on down the river.

"Come on ! Big fella, sit down and rest a while."

The Temagami River as it moves on downstream

View from the porch swing

The cabin in a shady riverside glade among some elm trees. South facing, it get the morning sun.

While the cabin is only about 1/4 of a mile, from the house, across my property, it is largely out of sight, being located on the slope of the river cut. It seems so secluded here. It is a good place to sit and contemplate.

I have been spending a little time here with Heidi working on some interior work on the cabin which never seems to get done. It is nice to go for a swim a couple of times a day whenever I work up a sweat.

A bunch of us were discussing places of Peace, Quiet - real get aways where one could spend some serious time in solitude, in tranquil contemplation, and your cabin immediately came to mind.
How fortunate you are to have such a place. It always draws me to it when I see the pictures. Calming...
Thanks for sharing again.

What a wonderful spot! I'm so jealous!! We looked at a place on the Sturgeon river recently but the house was disgustingly filthy. It needed to be torn down and rebuilt but the river front was flood plain and couldn't be built on so we wouldn't have had a river view anyway and that's what I really, really want!!!

I remember your little cabin. It is an awesome place to hang out and meditate on what life's all about. Enjoy!

You've posted the cabin before, and it's just as lovely as ever. Did Heidi get into the swing? She looks like she's contemplating it.
