But, I can never see them without thinking of one version of the song "I Know Where I'm Going." I have a recording of that by the New Christy Minstrels. It's a traditional folk song and the words get massaged every time someone records it. However, I love that particular version, and I used it as the closing for the program I used to give about hiking the North Country Trail. I used that program until I had finished the trail, and then I made a new program.
Part of the chorus goes "Who writes the music in the quiet summer morning?" I used this picture of Golden Spindles, taken at Pictured Rocks in 1999 for that line of the song. The fungi, reaching to dance with the lycopodium, always sang to me. Do you find nature singing to you?
By the way, the song ends "I'm going where you go, and you'll be there beside me. The lovelight in your eyes is all I need to guide me. Oo-oo-oo. I know where I'm going." Coupled with pictures of happy hikers, this song made a powerful conclusion to the program.
In other news: I edited, I wrote a chapter, I got the flat tire off the mower and loaded in the car so I can take it to be fixed. I went to town, and I figured something out on the trailer. A friend stopped by for a while. Sounds like a lot, but I still had time to do some reading for fun. Good day.
