On The Island

A week ago - last Sunday - I was sitting with friends on Halfway Island in Lower Saranac Lake for a morning meditation. It rained earlier, and the water dripped from the overhanging pines while we sat quietly, looking out over a grey and blue waterscape and the other islands that are scattered across the lake. The croaks of Common Ravens and the chips of chickadees floated across to us. During our Saturday meditation, a raven sat nearby and joined our chanting.
