Room with a View: Cottage Memories!
I really enjoy having this beautiful indoor/outdoor view from my workroom! I have always been attracted to stained glass and finally found this awesome piece a few years ago. It's so peaceful to turn and see these radiant dragonflies shimmering in the sunshine.
Brings back memories of our family cottage and good times on Hagerman Lake in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, rowing out to the islands in the little robin's egg blue boat, and watching the turtles sun themselves on fallen logs.
I see them still: dragonflies of many colors flitting about, landing here and there, their iridescent wings skimming pink and white water lilies. Then speedily flying away to dart and dip in the light. More than ten thousand days gone by but the memory lingers long.
