Most mornings I read an article or two in The New York Times before I start work on the blog post for the day. This gets my brain engaged & raises my cognitive awareness from nil to semi-cogent. This mornings article A Passage to India about Isla Van Damme a.k.a. Loulou reminded me of Karen Blixen & her stories, most notably Out of Africa. Both of these women have a strong sense of place that is clearly reflected in their work. While my 20's were spent in a distinct peregrination, I am now coming up on four years of living in one place. Shocking especially as it is a place I never thought I would live. And by never I mean the thought NEVER crossed my mind that I would be living on an island off the coast of South Carolina. However I am thankful & think that these current Aerial Views are a direct result from living here & spending time immersed in maritime forest & tidal waterways. Yay for the Lowcountry! Happy Friday Y'all!
