Living Here...

We have lived in the Quad Cities all our lives.
The Mississippi river divides the four major cities
in our area, and the water draws me like a strong magnet
when I need to think, or relax, or simply remember
my childhood - growing up on its banks.

Today we enjoyed the Mississippi from a local park;
watching the clouds drift past,
the white pelicans soar above the dam nearby,
and just quietly talking
about the next steps in our lives.

More adventures?
Every day.
