The exact spot where the Kennebec River pours into Merrymeeting Bay is a magical spot, home to rare plant life and a stopoff for many migrating birds. But today it is still frozen, although ducks frequent it even now. Life is still here. It is just hidden, perhaps like the seeds hiding patiently in our own souls. Even though the sun climbs higher in the sky now, we still have a long wait. Yet experience tells us that the wait is worth every second.
