I grew up on Amacoy Lake in North Central Wisconsin. Us lake kids spent the summer either in the lake or on the lake. We'd meet every afternoon to go swimming at a nice sandy beach at the south end of the lake and after a couple of hours of sun and water we would return to our homes for dinner. Then in the evening we would meet once again and swim until it was dark. This is the way it was...this is the way it was supposed to be in our minds for we never realized that we were growing up with things that most do not get to experience.
Then I grew up...we all grew up...and we went on with our lives. We all pursued jobs and lives elsewhere in the country. In my case I went off to university in the Twin Cities and then eventually lived 35 years in San Francisco and then Pacifica. Now I've returned to Wisconsin and live in a village in Northwestern Wisconsin...in the heart of lake country.
Yes, the circle is now complete. What I do and where I go from this point on...I do not know. Suffice it to say that my faith will guide me and that divine order is present in all facets of my life.
