Happy Father’s Day

“What a father says to his children is not heard by the world; but it will be heard by posterity.”    John Paul Richter

Original watercolor by Karen Hines,  A peaceful cove on the lake with reflections in the water

Quiet Cove, watercolor by Karen Hines

I spent many hours in conversation with my father  while sitting on the banks of Claytor Lake and the New River.

I spent the morning at the lake yesterday.  I arrived early to find a thin veil of mist over the still water and the sounds of nature all around. I love the smell of damp mud where the lake meets the shore .  It takes me back in time and makes me happy.
