Lake Superior Shoreline

“push, splash, gurgle, pullLake Superior shoreline
push, splash, gurgle, pull

pull, push, splash, gurgle
pull, push, splash, gurgle

gurgle, pull, push, splash
gurgle, pull, push, splash

splash, gurgle, pull, push
splash, gurgle, pull, push”

say the waves lapping the
rocks at water’s edge

About Gordon C. Stewart

I've always liked quiet. And, like most people, I've experienced the world's madness. "Be Still! Departure from Collective Madness" (Wipf and Stock Publishers, Jan. 2017) distills 47 years of experiencing stillness and madness as a campus minister and Presbyterian pastor (IL, WI, NY, OH, and MN), poverty criminal law firm executive director, and social commentator. Our dog Barclay reminds me to calm down and be much more still than I would be without him.
