Up To The Bruce Peninsula And Back Down

it’s safety – the safety of home
back in a population before the over population
with the same beauty without the isolation
-Frankford Road
talking to cousin Bruce then leaving Tobermory
blurring the view(s) of upper Ontario
the height – climbing back down the hill
following the Trent Severn into Trenton.
survival is not necessary here
there is a net back under us
but does that mean the beauty is dulled?

no –

it’s going back up then returning
remembering and – reviewing the daily.
taking advantage rather than for granted…..
Stirling Road back into town
another small
Ontario town – temporary home within
provincial home…..
