Take a walk in Blue Bell Woods listen to the sounds around you, of bird song and bees. Smell the flowers and the scent of Spring in the air. Every year is a new beginning and every day a blessing

"The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" - Gordon Lightfoot (HD w/ Lyrics)
I don't know why this always gets to me. I had only been in Michigan a few years when it happened. It forever coloured my view of Lake Superior. I see her as a very dangerous lady. I love going there. We usually stop in at Whitefish point and go to the Great Lakes shipping museum where the artifacts from the wreck are displayed. The Gordon Lightfoot song plays there in a ha;f light that sets the mood. All crew members were lost that day. The very power that can break one of those ships in half is unbelievable. The ship was loaded with iron ore.
There will be a memorial there this weekend to remember 40 years ago that night the Edmund Fitzgerald was lost with all hands. I remember it being on the news that she was missing.............then the wait. Only to find she was down.
The words to the song bring it all to the emotion of that night. It is haunting.
