Finding that place to work, reflect, relate and observe encourages a familiarity and a sense of home wherever you may be. Although I no longer live in the Twin Cities, I’ve recently rediscovered Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis during the non-winter months as such a place.
I feel the same way about the lakes in Minneapolis. I grew up on the south side and visit every summer. Lake Harriet is my touchstone but I visit Calhoun, too. I’ll be there next week, in fact.
