Safe Places.  More and more I find that I paddle alone now.  The summer kayakers went home.  If I am quiet (and perfect my paddle stroke!) I can hear the music of the trees along the shoreline.  I struggle with the weight of my kayak, and at times the winds are stronger than my skills; but there are places that I need to get to - places that remain wild.  Safe places to wait out a storm.  Natural places for a peaceful spirit. Good places that must be protected.  Hickory Ridge is such a place.  There are other places too, of course - but I need a plane and a week off to get there. :)
