Yesterday afternoon/evening was pretty close to a classic fall day here in New Glasgow. As I wasn't feeling too bad, I decided to see if there might be room on the dragon boat. There was. It was spectacular. Charleen did the steering, and an admirable job she did. We set out around 6:15 p.m. from the New Glasgow Marina and headed down the River towards Stellarton. I hadn't been out since we beached during the DB Festival, so I stuck to the back of the boat. It was great to see everyone. We did a run down and then headed back towards the Marina. The wind had completely died down. The River became a mirror. We tried to find some songs to sing, but instead, almost drifted to shore! But we diverted disaster and ended up turning around again. I'm glad we did. There had been a bank of marshmallow-like clouds in the southern sky. When we turned those clouds were now the reflection of the sunset - what a sight to behold. We stopped, in awe almost. The leaves along the banks just starting to show their magnificence. Above us flocks of geese in formation, heading to ports unknown. None of us had cameras, so we must hold these sights in our memories. Paddling season is almost over. Folks are, like the geese, heading to warmer climes. Can't help but wonder what shall transpire between now and when we meet again.
This morning I awoke with a migraine. So, today is Emma day until tonight when I'll take part in a contemporary worship session at Trinity. I'll be careful. Blood work tomorrow before Friday's chemo.
Peace to you all. I hear there are viruses going around. I guess it is that time of year. Take care of yourselves!
