OK, I admit it, I became homesick this morning.
And you will never guess what caused it...remember the song by Gordon Lightfoot, THE WRECK OF THE EDMOND FITZGERALD??? It was on the radio this morning, and for the first time SINCE the wreck, I had NOT remembered that important date of November 10th. I always commemorate that date in my heart and mind. I have no reason to, other than my love for the Great Lakes, my respect for shipping crews and love forLake Superior.
For my readers not familiar with the Fitz, you can go to
All kinds of info there, and for the song, you can go to;
You really need to listen to the song; it is a haunting song. Some people will understand how this song can affect a person to the point of making them homesick...or even feeling guilty that you forgot the anniversary date.
