|The Sleeping Giant of Thunder Bay....shh, don't wake the giant.....|
Ah yes, "Boredom slays more of existence than war." - Norman Mailer
...and funny thing boredom still arrives in the middle of your hectic life....really it does. Boredom for me is not the lack of doing things....it's when my brain, heart and soul become needy.........
From the cliffs at Squaw Bay, the Giant appears, most distinctly....waiting-pleasing- from the city of Thunder Bay on the Park.
The back of this post card reads, Ontario, Canada Legend and mystery surround this phenomenon of nature. Because the secret of the great Silver Mine was revealed to White Man, Nanna Bijou, Spirit of the Deep Sea Water, was turned to stone during a storm that forever submerged the once richest silver mine known. A lost legend leaves us to wonder about the identity of the Indian Princess waiting for the Great Spirit to awaken.
I believe my parents took me here as a child, sadly they are both gone and I can't ask them. But I remember most of my childhood life always thinking, and waiting and yes perhaps hoping that the Great Spirit would ride in one day on his stunning white horse.....really.
This link explains more about this mysterious giant still waiting for you...
It's certainly a view you must see for yourself, across the panoramic Sibley Peninsula a formation of mesas and sills that juts on the lake Superior (Wisconsin has these too) and forms a body of water that is Thunder Bay.
So while I marvel at this most interesting of places to journey to......all boredom flies out the window....... all one must do is.....
