Tranquil Tuesday-The Color of Water



This photo was taken in Scotland. Can you believe it? The color of this water is just so gorgeous. It looks like the Caribbean or Walloon Lake. I was on my way to Iona with an adult pilgrimage group in 2004. The photo reminded me of a great book. The Color of Water. It is about a white mother raising her African American children in Harlem. My hometown, Kalamazoo, Michigan read this book as a city in 2005. I love my childhood home so much. The Read Together program was so inspiring. Read more here. Enjoy your Traquil Tuesday and try to unplug for the evening.

I have friends on the Mull of Kintyre who have semi-tropical flowers that grow year-round. It's the way the Gulf Stream curls up and around and ends up in Scotland. Who knew?
