Off to the Upper Mississippi

"Along the Upper Mississippi every hour brings something new. There are crowds of odd islands, bluffs, prairies, hills, woods and villages--everything one could desire to amuse the children. Few people ever think of going there, however."

--Mark Twain


  1. Isn't that usually the case....gorgeous picture, by the way. She looks so wistful, like she'd thinking of pleasant things.

  2. Thank you very much--I liked the picture, too. I identified with the pose because I can dream for hours when I'm looking out at a river or lake or ocean. There's just something about moving water that promotes contemplation and daydreaming.
