April 13, 2011. Another day of glorious low-budget vacationing. My son and I took a sack lunch to Basel, sat on the Rhine and philosophically talked about the difference between the exciting, yet brief waves of a speedboat that passed by, and the deep, long-lasting waves projected by a slow-moving barge that moved up the river. So many analogies there. We came home and I sat in the cemetery to sketch this little scene, a reminder of the brevity of life, and the importance to love those God put in your path today.
