Day 10 -- January Torch, Hymn to Life

I swam in Torch Lake when I was pregnant, when I was a new Mom, it's the first lake Jacob splashed his feet in, and this is our favorite swim spot.

This afternoon, on a drive back from a wonderful brunch with friends, we stopped to explore.

Torch Lake is not immune to the changes occurring due to climate change and global weirding.

I recently read an excellent poem on these topics. Hymn to Life by Timothy Donnelly is a long poem, but slow down, take a seat, give it a read. Or listen to the first nine stanzas put to music here.
