It cannot be overstated how much Lake Superior changes in a single day this time of year. Yesterday there were a few chunks of ice balls near the shore and open water as far as the eye can sees (that’s about 7 miles to the horizon when standing at the shore). And today, it was nothing but ice as far as the eye can see.

As I prepare for my TEDxNMU talk I have been thinking a lot about taking delight in nature, finding delight, seeking delight. My dear friend Stephanie likes to joke about how amused I am all the time. I think that’s something that I’ve always found in nature.

She commented, “How on earth did you notice that?” It starts with taking delight in the smallest things.
