Annual Salute to the Graduates Inside this Week; Commencement ceremony set for Sunday, June 1 By Kate Bassett Harbor Light Newspaper

Harbor Light photo/Charles O’Neill

Marching On... The end of May brings a time of community gatherings, memories and both collective joy and sadness. Harbor Springs residents and visitors came together on Monday, Memorial Day, to honor those who gave their lives. Young people were celebrated at the North Country Kids preschool graduation last week and this coming Sunday, June 1, the class of 2014 will march on in their commencement ceremony.

In a small town, graduation is more than just names being called, diplomas presented, tassels turned. It’s a celebration and send-off for children who were born and/or raised in a tight-knit, tradition-rich place. It’s a time to remember skinned knees on Main Street, first swims in Lake Michigan, favorite moments from the classrooms, stages, athletic fields and backyard adventures. And for the Harbor Springs High Senior Honors Convocation School Class of 2014, it means know- Wednesday, May 28 at 7 p.m. ing, as they descend the steps of Ot- at the Performing Arts Center. tawa Stadium on Sunday, June 1, the Baccalaureate cheers will come from more than just Thursday, May 29 at 7 pm at family and friends. They will come Stutsmanville Church. from the whole community. Graduation “We are continuing the tradition of Sunday, June 1 at 2:30 p.m. at Otgraduating outstanding individual stutawa Stadium (Harbor Springs dents and people of good character,” High School if it rains) said Harbor Springs superintendent Mark Tompkins, who noted the old “it takes a village” adage rings especially true in towns like this one, where the community is invested in each and every child. As a whole, this year’s graduating class is an impressive bunch, filled with caring, fun-loving, bright students. High School principal Susan Jacobs said she is truly going to miss 2014’s seniors. “The class of 2014 has been a dream to work with both academically and socially,” she said. “They are a highly social group, full of laughter and good will. I am sure that the level of laughter, giggles, and smiles will be reduced when they leave.” -CONTINUED on page 10.

Harbor Area Housing,The Village of Hillside, the Friendship Center of Harbor Springs, and Presbyterian Villages of Michigan, recently announced the “Hillside/Friendship Center Renewal Project.” A new two-story, totally handicapped-accessible, energy efficient building will replace the first three buildings of The Village of Hillside, allowing residents to remain in their apartments as they age.

The lack address phone of elevators can mean seniors living on the second floor must move just as they are least able to. The renewal project will increase the number of apartments from 24 to 32. Founded in 1975, the Friendship Center of Harbor Springs has served area seniors in several locations, including the old Presbyterian Church on Third Street, Harbor Springs High School, the new Presbyterian Church on Cemetery Road, and the Methodist Church. For four decades the Friendship Center of Harbor Springs has provided hot lunches, exercise, social activities, outings, medical and financial services, and more. The current location, the community room of Hillside Building C, is only 672 square feet including the kitchen and its one ®

bathroom. It has only four parking places. While its Main Street location is outstanding, the size severely limits the number of seniors who can be served. Of the $6.2 million building project $4.7 million will come from local, state, and federal financing sources. In addition, a fundraising campaign is being launched to generate the remaining $1.5 million. Approximately $500,000 has already been raised. Construction will begin when fundraising is complete. During construction, comparable housing must be found and the disruption minimized for current residents. The drive is being headed by Fred Walstrom of Harbor Springs and Linda Rhodes-Pauly of Cross Village. “The renewal of the Hillside campus is essential to allow seniors to remain close to downtown Harbor Springs and participate in all the activities our town has to offer,” Rhodes-Pauly said in a news release. “Over 40 years ago, leaders in our community had the vision to make Hillside a reality. Now, it is our turn -CONTINUED on page 13.

Harbor Springs High School graduate Mark Wilde will be the 2014 commencement speaker at graduation ceremonies Sunday, June 1. Wilde shared some of his career journey in a recent question and answer email with the Harbor Light Newspaper. Born in Harbor Springs in 1957 while his dad was teaching at Harbor Springs High School, Wilde attend school here from Kindergarten through his graduation in 1975. He started taking classes at North Central Michigan College as a senior in high school and attended the College for a year after high school. Mark Wilde He transferred to Alma College where he studied history & business and graduated in 1979 Summa Cum Laude & with department honors. “I was a much better/more focused student in college than high school,” Wilde said. He went on to graduate school at the “At its best, I think (growing University of Delaware on a full-ride felfunded by the Hagley Museum up in Harbor Springs) teaches lowship & Library - - - in a program intended to us respect, consideration for train historians and museum professionals.

Part way through his graduate program, Mary started in a PhD program at the University of Pennsylvania in cell biology. The two lived in Philadelphia near the Penn campus where Wilde commuted the one hour to Delaware as needed. Wilde shared his career steps from there: “As I was finishing my PhD, I took a job at Wharton Econometric (WEFA) in Philadelphia inlate 1985. I’d studied economic history and had math, accountings & statistics class - - - so the leap wasn’t as huge as it looked. “After three years, I was a senior economist and was recruited in late 1988 to join Bankers Trust in NYC as an economist. After a few years, Bankers Trust moved me into their start-up securities business. I became a stock analyst and, eventually, the director of equity research. I was made a Managing Director in 1995 and a partner at Bankers Trust in 1997. Deutsche Bank (DB) bought Bankers Trust in 1999. I stayed on at DB until earlier this year, when I was recruited to join Bank of Montreal --- I’ll join them in late June. “I have a small team of people who work for me and we specialize in analyzing and recommending stocks in the forestry, wood products, -CONTINUED on page 10.

Library director turning the page on her time here

American Life in Poetry

By Kate Bassett


Harbor Light Newspaper

The list of activity reads like a hundred different hotspots around town-- Chess club, poetry slams, movie nights, sleepovers, study sessions, craft nights, farm to table dinners, lectures, wedding portraits, spanish language and knitting groups-- but in truth, it’s just a hint of all that’s been happening at the Harbor Springs Library, located above Howes Fudge Shop on the corner of Spring and Main Streets. Under the leadership Harbor Springs High School graduate Alex Osetek, who returned to her hometown after college (and time spent travelling the globe, including a stint of living in Chile), the town’s little privately funded but open to the public “reading room,” went from a historically loved book spot to a full scale community center and highly functioning library that includes MelCat interlibrary loans. “I arrived at the perfect time, really, because it was right when the library was finish-

ing renovations. I literally was able to start fresh,” Osetek said of when she started in 2011. Alex Osetek “My first year here was all about building programs and community outreach. If someone had a suggestion, my answer was always ‘yes! Let’s try it!’” That open attitude and affinity toward young people turned the library into a true safe haven for the community’s teenagers. Whether the library is packed with high school chess clubbers or providing space for exam cramming, Osetek said she’s happiest when the room is full of young people. “Nothing makes me smile more,” she said. “I’ve had kids call my cell phone at 10 p.m. and say they need a place to finish a group project, and I’ll come down and open the library and hang out until they are done. That’s the beauty of

growing up in a small town, and I’m lucky I’ve been able to be a part of it.” Osetek is leaving her position at the library this week, with world-travel plans in the works. “I’m having very mixed emotions,” she said of her departure. “I feel like I’ve achieved what I wanted to do here in terms of building community and making sure we are up-to-date as a non-profit organization, but I will miss the connections I’ve made.” Pulling ancient looking record books off a high shelf in the library, Osetek smiled and paged through handwritten notes dating back to the late 1800s. “This is how the library kept its records until the mid-1980s,” she said. “There are volumes and volumes like this one. It’s cool to see and experience the history, but we’ve come a long way in terms of how we function as an organization, and I can say with 100-percent certainty now we’re exactly where we need to be to start building for a sustainable future.”

‘Men’s Call to Action’ event May 29 A town hall-style meeting titled, “Men’s Call to Action” will be held at the Demmer Wellness Center Pavilion in Petoskey at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, May 29. The event is meant to encourage men in the community to collectively seek and develop practical ways to empower themselves, as well as the boys and young men in their lives to reach their greatest human potential. In the face of a highly violent media culture, Men’s Call to Action is one way men can become part of the solution in creating a future that is safe and equitable for all people. “It is so critical for us to stand up and actively oppose violence against women,” said Bill Wilson a northern Michigan social worker who volunteers on the Violence Prevention team and is a 100 Men Campaign contributor. He referenced a recent national survey by the Centers for Disease Control which revealed that one in five women had been raped in their lifetime and one in four had been the victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner. “As a father of two daughters, these statistics frighten and anger me – they also motivate me to do my part to “man up” and join the work to end violence against women and girls,” said Wilson. The Men’s Call to Action meeting also picks up where Joe Ehrmann left off. Ehrmann, a former NFL player, author, coach and edu-

cator, visited Petoskey last year for a lecture and coaches workshop. He stressed the importance of modeling and developing in young men and boys the essential qualities of empathy, compassion, competence, reflection and self-worth. During his time in northern Michigan, Ehrmann made clear we all have some kind of responsibility to make a difference in this world, and men and boys need to step up and help end this violence. Area resident, Kevin Burns, who is also a Violence Prevention Team volunteer and 100 Men Campaign contributor said, “My participation with the Violence Prevention Team and 100 Men Campaign events has inspired me to get involved and make a difference regarding the negative cultural and social norms that contribute to violence and gender inequality. The Men’s Call to Action is another great opportunity.” Men’s Call to Action will feature facilitated discussion and food will be available to those in attendance. The Demmer Wellness Center Pavilion is located at 820 Arlington Avenue in Petoskey. For more information contact the Violence Prevention Team Coordinator at (231) 347-1572.


Osetek is modest about the amount of success she’s experienced and shy to acknowledge how far the library-- once known most for the sweet scent of fudge between its stacks-- has come in the last few years. “I just want this to continue to be a place for the community to gather,” she said, diverting conversation from her own accolades. “I think it’s a good time for a change in leadership, because with a new director will come new energy and new ideas. We’ve reached a place where we’ve sort of grown to capacity in the last few years, so the next phase of the library is going to be maintaining the level of services we’re now providing.” The library’s board recently hired Casey Adams to replace Osetek. He will begin work at the library the first week of June.

The Harbor Springs Library is hosting a send-off for Osetek on Friday, May 30 from 4-6 p.m. All in the community are invited to attend.

The Impressionists, on both sides of the Atlantic, gave us a number of handsome paintings of rural scenes, and here’s a poem by the distinguished American poet, Catharine Savage Brosman, that offers us just such a picture, not in pigments but in words.

Cattle Fording Tarryall Creek With measured pace, they move in single file, dark hides, white faces, plodding through low grass, then walk into the water, cattle-style, indifferent to the matter where they pass. The stream is high, the current swift—good rain, late snow-melt, cold. Immerging to the flank, the beasts proceed, a queue, a bovine chain, impassive, stepping to the farther bank— continuing their march, as if by word, down valley to fresh pasture. The elect, and stragglers, join, and recompose the herd, both multiple and single, to perfect impressions of an animated scene, the creek’s meanders, milling cows, and sun. Well cooled, the cattle graze knee-deep in green. We leave them to their feed, this painting done.

Harbor Springs...Now and Then Musings, memories & news about you By CYNTHIA MORSE ZUMBAUGH | 231.526.7842


June Special


Frame Of Your Choice Good Thru The End Of June THRU THE ARCHED DOORWAY AT THE REAR OF COYOTE WOMAN GALLERY 160 E. Main Street Harbor Springs, MI 231-526-5889

I have decided to forgo my annual attempt at Commencement advice since my invitation to speak never arrives and because this year a classmate of mine, Mark Wilde, will be giving the Commencement address in Harbor Springs. I’ll just leave that in his more than capable hands. Instead, I’d like to discuss the weekend we just had. Memorial Day tends to make me nostalgic; I won’t apologize for that. It is, after all, the purpose of the holiday to take a moment and remember those that gave their lives for us and, for many of us, to think about those who are no longer with us. Perhaps I am wearing my lovely rose-colored glasses or just playing the Glad Game (from Disney’s Pollyanna) but I am glad that I live where I do and I am proud to the core of my hometown. The Memorial Day remembrances are done so beautifully, and with such reverence. The 4th of July is a holiday for celebra-

tion of our independence; Memorial Day is not a day to celebrate, but to remember and that is done very well in Harbor Springs. The parade was short and sweet with the usual participants. There is the High School Band (with those tentative Middle Schoolers playing with the big guys for the first time,) the Drum and Bugle Corps, the Color Guard, the ladies from the Legion Auxiliary, the Poppy Girl and, of course, the Veterans. As I’ve heard noted, this is not Veteran’s Day but you know what? We don’t have a parade on Veteran’s Day and these warriors need to be acknowledged. When the ceremony at the waterfront started, I walked around looking at faces. That probably was not the most reverent thing for me to be doing, but contrary to popular belief, I can walk and think at the same time, and I wanted to observe reactions. It was amazing. People were not

just biding time, standing there waiting for what comes next. They were listening, quietly taking in the sights and sounds. There are two things that I noticed that I would like to mention. The first is probably not politically correct, but since that’s not a condition that I have ever strived to attain, let me say how it touched me to see a prayer being said and everyone bowing their heads. Second, I was so happy to see all of the hats and caps removed at that time. I know I sound like an Emily Post groupie sometimes, but removing your hat is a sign of respect and it was done simultaneously all across the park. It’s a little thing, but it is often the little things that mean the most. The speakers were excellent, again short and to the point but also to the heart. The musings of these veterans are so heartfelt, so wrenching that I don’t know how anyone could fail to be

moved. WTCM, one of the local radio stations, had an interview with a World War II veteran last week; I tried to get his name but I wasn’t able to do so. He was one of the soldiers involved in the liberation of the concentration camps. During his interview, there was a call in from a woman in Sault Ste Marie; she was one of the children liberated. She talked about how the Americans came in and all the children were so hungry that the troops gave them bananas, something she was completely unfamiliar with but oh, so happy to eat. She was crying, the vet was crying; it was one of the most touching moments of radio that I have ever had the honor of hearing. Needless to say, my eyes were not exactly dry, either. So thank you to Harbor Springs for understanding that Memorial Day is not about cookouts, it’s not about selling mattresses and cars, it’s not about celebrating; it’s

about honoring and that was done perfectly. Now we can get to some birthday celebrations, beginning with Jeri Paige Wilson on Thursday, May 29, happy 57-57. Friday, May 30, Happy Birthday to Michelle Schwartz and Dean Cosens and on Saturday, Happy Birthday to my baby, Rudi Zumbaugh. (He’s registered at the Pet Pantry and he wears an XXL if anyone is interested.) Sunday, June 1, Congratulations to all the graduates and Happy Birthday to Joe Walker. Monday we send birthday wishes to Beth Rahaley and Rob Furhman and on Tuesday to Sarah Cohen, Wilma Tippett and to Lucas Morse. On Wednesday June 4, Happy Birthday to Kevin Dooley, wherever he may be this year and a very Happy Anniversary on May 31 to Kate and Justin Bassett.

Sally’s Dawn Chorus

Share your news 526-2191 |

Kolors for Kolkata Family Fun Run set for June 7 On Saturday, June 7th at 10:00 am, the still morning air will erupt with laughter and fun. The rising sun will be outshone by the vibrant colors of blue, purple, green, red, and yellow. It is time once again for the Kolors for Kolkata Family Fun Run. This will be the second year that the event is hosted by the Harbor Springs High School National Honor Society at the track at Reynolds Field. The run, with 1 and 2 mile loop options, is put on to

raise money for Bulbulir Basa Orphanage in Kolkata, India. The orphanage was founded in 2000 as a direct response to the high levels of homeless children in the city and has been visited by Harbor Spring’s own, Will Dart. Registration/check-in begins at 9:00 am and the fee is by donation with a minimum of $5. There are only two rules: wear white and be prepared to be blasted with color. We hope to see you there!

North Central Michigan College offering variety of summer workshops

Submitted by Kenyon Stebbins As many of you know, Sally has celebrated her birthday each May 23 for the past 20 years (8 in West Virginia, and the rest in Harbor Springs) by enjoying the spring’s “Dawn Chorus” in our yard. This involves getting up well before dawn, getting settled outdoors, and quietly welcoming the start of the day by identifying each bird species as it sings or calls. I have the privilege of acting as scribe. The weather this year in our woods 4 miles NW of Harbor Springs (Emmet County) was cool ( 43-48 degrees) and Sally was in her warmest winter parka, and also inside her sleeping bag. We had 5-10 mph winds and mostly overcast skies, although we were treated to periodic glimpses of a beautiful crescent moon. This year’s Dawn Chorus yielded 35 species between 4:40 am and 7:30 am. This total was well above our average of 26 species, and was our second-highest total ever (3 short of the 38 species in 2008). While a dawn chorus is always a magical experience, this year’s was especially appreciated after enduring such a long and challenging winter. Here are some details from this year’s Dawn Chorus: 5:10 am American Robin, first bird heard; followed in short order by Mourning DovePuzzle #2, Black-capped The weekly Crossword is brought to Chickadee, you courtesy#3, of:Wild Turkey #4….Black-Throated Green Warbler #13, , Official sunrise 6:01 am; Red-shouldered Hawk #14….Magnolia Warbler #20…...Scarlet Tanager #34, American Redstart #35 7:30 am End observations and we head out to breakfast!

Weather HighLights

Week’s Low: Sat, May 24, 39F Week’s High, Sun, May 25, 75F What a delightful holiday weekend of perfect weather we enjoyed!! It just couldn’t have been any nicer and was certainly appreciated, Saturday and Sunday were bright and sunny from dawn to dusk. The threat of some rain on Monday never materialized, a few clouds passed by but by mid-afternoon the sun was out.The parade and services afterward were reminders and remembrances of those being saluted on that beautiful day as this small town has done for so many years. The weather for the remainder of this week is predicted to be in the 60s-70’s with plenty of sun. We welcome our returning friends and visitors, and hope everyone will enjoy and visit our new businesses, and those who are the mainstays of our town. We look forward to the Farmer’s Market opening in June, and to a great summer in Harbor Springs.

“The discipline and responsibility of a job and the dealing with adults are all important lessons. The range of people (economically & educationally) that we grew-up with was pretty good preparation for life. There were folks on my paper route in the late 1960’s using outhouses in homes just off Summit St. The sense of community and the number of ways that people gave their time to make community were important lessons. It came in things like church activities and scouts, pee wee basketball and little league. “The best acknowledgement of Harbor Springs’ NEW LISTING impact came when I resigned from WEFA in 1988 to take the job in New York City. A very prim and proper and classy 40 year old African-American secretary (Loraine) pulled me aside. She had worked a one of the big law firms in New York City before she and her husband had moved to one of the Philly suburbs for a better family life. “She pulled me aside and said ‘Mark, I want you to be careful up there, it’s a shark tank . . . but you, you’ll come out unscathed.’ “At its best, I think the town teaches us respect, consideration for others and a measure of humility.” Wilde said his speech at graduation will be brief as he understands the desire of the graduates and families to move on and celebrate the day. “I have three short “take home” messages: (1) Have confidence, you can compete in the world; (2) Carry with you in life the best things from this community; (3) Be a citizen - - - we receive many benefits from our community and country. We need to (give) things back - - - citizenship grants many benefits, but entails responsibility.”

Summer Business 2014: What’s New Around Town

Editor’s Note: With a long winter now behind us and summer fast approaching, we want to provide readers a quick tour of what’s new in our neck of the woods. From restaurants to expanded retail spaces, new shops and fresh faces, in the coming weeks we’ll highlight changes folks can expect see around town. Business owners with announcements of moves, expansion or other major changes can send the information to Businesses are also encouraged to contact Michelle Ketterer,, who will be happy to help with a high quality print advertising campaign in the Harbor Light Newspaper. 231-526-2191.

Moving on up... Between the Covers already established itself as one of downtown’s anchor stores, and a recent move “above ground” to 106 East Main (formerly the Northwestern Bank building) solidifies the bookstore as a true community gathering space. “If this weekend was any indication, many people must look at the sidewalk when they walk down Main Street, for we had a great number of local residents in the store who had never known there was a bookstore in Harbor Springs. We are so grateful to now be in a more visible, prominent and accessible spot, yet still in close proximity to ice cream!” said Between the Covers owner Katie Capaldi. Inside the new store, natural light warms exposed brick walls that are lined with Capalidi’s hand-picked book selections. The store itself is beautiful, but what’s more significant is the space it provides for folks to sit and read, catch up, soak in ideas and the inspiration that comes when surrounded by words on paper. “If you haven’t been back in since we reopened last Tuesday, the granite countertops have been installed, the office door has been hung, flowers have been planted out front and some calm has been restored. Now we can focus on sharing good reads with all of you,” Capaldi said.

Pizza Pizzazz... BC Pizza recently expanded to a new location in the Fairview Plaza in uptown Harbor Springs. You need only cross the parking lot from their old location to find them now located on the south side of the plaza in the corner between Tim Bondy Physical Therapy and Chang Cuisine. More than doubling their space makes for a truly comfortable, quiet dining experience. Now you can enjoy the AYCE Lunch Buffet which features an extensive salad bar and a wide variety of hand-tossed gourmet pizzas prepared with only the highest quality ingredients. The Wathen family purchased BC Pizza of Harbor Springs on November 4 of 2003. They have served and employed the Harbor Springs community for over 10 years.

to step up and support this important project for our elders, today and in the future.” “My mother and many others worked hard to create The Village of Hillside and the Friendship Center of Harbor Springs,” Walstrom said. “Both organizations have served the community well, but both need improvement. I’m very excited about seeing this project through.” Since 1945, Presbyterian Villages of Michigan has been a premier senior living provider. As a nonprofit, faith-based organization, it is committed to serving senior citizens of all faiths, walks of life and all financial means. PVM has been operating the apartments at Hillside since 1998. In 2007, the boards of 60.37Area Housing and Harbor Hillside Apartments transferred ownership and control of the Hillside property to PVM.

Amina Soulimani (left) and Sophie Schneider were exchange students at Harbor Springs this year. Amina reflected on her year in the essay below.

Everybody Cares Editor’s Note: Whenever Harbor Springs High School is fortunate enough to host exchange students, we love the opportunity to hear a reflection on what life has been like in northern Michigan. Below is an essay by Moroccan exchange student Amina Soulimani, who sums up perfectly the beauty of being present and the feeling of small town community found here.

American series that are filmed in high schools tend to give a blurred image about the reality. I have always thought that I would be studying in an atmosphere just like the one in High School Musical and such. Incidentally, I found a group of young teenagers dedicated to their studies, working hard to change, I found passionate artists and musicians. I was mostly surprised by the number of activities one person would be committed to and still excel in all of them, and I found myself carrying respect for every aspect of knowledge.

By Amina Soulimani


y name is Amina Soulimani and I am an exchange student from Morocco, sponsored by PAX- Program of Academic Exchange. Morocco a country in the northwestern corner of Africa, I live in Rabat, which is the capital. Rabat is a hybrid of modernism and traditionalism; its diversity would not escape you. Not only monuments decorate it and give it a true elegance, but also the few skyscrapers emphasize on the country’s efforts for development.


I consider Harbor Springs High School the best school I’ve ever attended among five others. As a matter fact, everybody cares, starting from the staff to the sport coaches. Teachers give their time and minds to help the students succeed in their studies. They even offer them food from time to another, and they treat each other as if they were peers or friends. This was something I have never experienced with a teacher before. In my high school in Morocco, my teachers are very strict, scream from time to time if not all the time and do not smile very often. When a student is interested in drama, music or any kind of clubs/ passion, it has to be out of the school. Our schools don’t provide extracurricular opportunities as the ones here.

Far away from home, I had the chance to meet the Rambo family, who opened their household, their hearts, gave me a shelter and devoted time and affection. They teach me everyday the American way of life and American values and mindsets and for that, my gratitude for them is endless. I self-taught myself English for a few years and was lucky enough to manage the language before settling in Harbor Springs and attending the high school. Despite that, I still had difficulties to understand what people meant or said, sometimes they talked too quickly, and sometimes they used a vocabulary I did not know.

This year has changed me in all kind of ways; I felt I grew as a person, as a mind and as an artist. I learnt that being different is not a sin, and I also realized that is by combining our differences and developing the common points that we finally can improve. The kindness of the people, the smiles in the street, my family, my friends, the bay, the view, my teachers, I know that I am going to miss everything in Harbor Springs.

My first impressions of Harbor Springs were vague. I remember when on the air, my face was glued to the small window of the airplane. All I could see was trees and little rivers here and there. It seemed to me that landed in the middle of nowhere. It is only when I visited it later that I realized how lucky I was to be living within such a beautiful area. The winter disturbed my mind and my perspective, but luckily it is a far away now.

North Country Kids preschoolers began the next phase in their educational journey as they ‘graduated’ last week in a ceremony held at Stutsmanville Church. There was plenty of ‘pomp and circumstance’ for the future class of 2027. Harbor Light photos/ Mark Flemming

I do not have a lot of time left, I am looking forward to try swimming in the lake, exploring every little corner I did not see, spend time with my family because it would definitely be hard to leave home to go home.
