The Dock


It’s 65 feet of wood planks. It sits on the frame of an old house trailer. It rides on wheels so it can roll in or out of the water as needed.

On nice days, it’s the centerpiece of Camp Many Moons.

It plays many roles: a place to read, or visit, or tie up your watercraft, or fish, or watch the skies. In my most restless times, I’ve come out here during the dark hours to pace or look at the stars, seeking peace of mind.

Lessons from a dock: Receive visitors with grace. Go out as far as needed to be useful. Prepare to retreat when the winter comes.
