I believe in bad gravel roads, hot pancakes on cool
mornings, tucked away lakes with no cottages, cabins
or formal camping, the solstice sun that never
truly sets, the temperament of old dogs, lily
pads, Jim Harrison poems, Bill Callahan songs,
walleye holding near the drop-off, eagles overhead,
black bears in camp, well worn moccasins, mid-morning
beers, a good woman who doesn’t mind the paddling,
the magic of black spruce stands and muskeg flats,
rickety docks handmade and half-submerged, two
fingers of rye in a blue tin cup, greasy hair,
distant loon calls, the water lapping at the canoe,
the din of mosquitoes, the wind in the birch,
how the whole world glows with a hint of wonder at
first light and has since we were children.

I believe in small signs from small gods nudging
our compass ever back towards grace.

Awesome! Algonquin, or even more remote?
BTW, not sure what you do when not paddling and casting, but if those are your words to open this TR, hopefully it involves some wordsmithing. That is impressive.

Unfortunately I did not, first time i've been up that way without having a feast of walleye cheeks.

That place is thick, thick with bears and even moreso this year. It has no formal campground or garbages or cleaning stations, etc, usually we just burn all the guts, newspaper, towels, etc. but with the huge fires up here we've been on fire ban since April. and didn't really want to be storing that shit until we left with that many bears about.

Little more remote yeah. About 4000km from Algonquin.

Thank you for the kind words, truly, but i'm just a pulp mill worker in my non-spare time.
