I like to fish. Fishing is always a way of relaxing.
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
-Henry David Thoreau
The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.
The photographs above were taken by me last week. I have no idea who the man is, but liked the perspectives of him fishing.

As I strolled around the lake this morning and inhaled its calm, I felt very fortunate. My thoughts turned to those who have already felt the wrath of Hurricane Isaac, and to those who are in the midst of the effects of Hurricane Isaac. My thoughts go out to all of you.
Below is a poem posted on the website Katrina’s Jewish Voices. When you get to the end, you will see the author’s name and age…
Winds are howling; trees are blowing.
Children are scared; lights aren’t glowing.
The next day, the levees broke.
I was sad; some were mad.
Gutters were hanging; swings were clanging.
We had to move and get into a new groove.
We changed to a new school and that was cool.
I couldn’t find my rubber duck; it was in the gross muck.
We had to start new and had a lot of shopping to do.
There’s a lot of traffic;
The pictures on the TV were very graphic.
I have new friends and new shoes.
They helped take away my blues!
Pets are dying; we’re all crying.
Old friends scatter; new friends really do matter!
They make my day and help me find my way!
I have no home or the Superdome.
I got a new jacket and a tennis racquet.
I am a Hurricane Katrina victim/survivor.
I know things will be better.
Katrina is gone, but I’m here living a life.
