9 May 2007 ~ I came to walk the shore of Lake Michigan with a friend. She had no jacket and, the weather falling ill, I exchanged my coat for a few thin blankets rummaged from her Jeep. We tramped along blanched dunes, our faces cleansed with spray from an approaching storm, and crept over bosky hills opposite the beach as pioneers of these billowy breakers of Marram and Sand Cherry.

As Abraham first gazed on Canaan's verdant bounds, so I view the landscapes of the world each with patriarchal wonder. On coming to a place of natural splendor, I am compelled to remove my shoes and exchange Eastern greetings with the local soil, for I am Guest of all ancient grottoes, monuments, valleys and seas. See that hut, that pilgrim pavilion of dust? I sojourn in yon' momentary tent of flesh, passing quietly to survey these, my promised lands of immortal trust. Self, I say, in light of Christ's covenant, there is neither stone nor stalk upon the globe which does not cast shadows of thy future inheritance. So I go lightly and with love, for all the earth is mine by divine endowment.
