It looks brisk out there!


FEEL THE WATERS’ HEALING

If you’re stressed and weary
Try a thing or two:
Go down to the river,
Take a friend with you;
Take your shoes and socks off,
Plunge in twenty toes—
Feel the waters’ healing
As the river flows!

I love Alaska... I used to work up there on a boat. I miss it. And the coolness, I live in Arizona now.

Great photo!

It looks fabulous. As I read this, I thought just how cold that water would be there in Alaska.
