Letters from Katherine: Anger

Posted on September 28, 2009


The weather has turned. Rollers crash on the Lake Michigan beaches. Rain falls sideways. Roiling black clouds flew east across the drumlins today, dropping a rainbow on Owen McDowell’s woodlot and a lot of rain on Bayview Farm.  John Sala said the harmonics from the halyards clanging against sailboat masts in the Elk Rapids harbor could be heard all over downtown. It may be . . . possibly . . . that summer is over.

Katherine writes: When you live near the lakes it always amazes me the emotion the water and sky evoke. Anger, calm, wild, gentle. Yesterday the lake and sky looked angry.

Angry lake

And it’s not even November.
