Friends of the Richelieu. A river. A passion.

"Tout cedit pays est fort uny, remply de forests, vignes & noyers. Aucuns Chrestiens n'estoient encores parvenus jusques en cedit lieu, que nous, qui eusmes assez de peine à monter le riviere à la rame. " Samuel de Champlain

"All this region is very level and full of forests, vines and butternut trees. No Christian has ever visited this land and we had all the misery of the world trying to paddle the river upstream." Samuel de Champlain

Ribbon of light

The bright ribbon of light is back. For a while, it was hidden by the leaves of summer. All I had was it's roar and it's smells. But the ribbon of light is back in my life.

All the drops of water going by, coming from mountains, and forests, and fields. Water coming from lakes, and streams, and other rivers, going by without looking back. Heading to another great big river and then to sea. Never to be seen again?
