When I was considering establishing a blog after being advised to do so by Jon Katz, out Writer’s Group leader, I was stuck on what I could possibly name it. I wanted to title it something general like a place, rather than a subject. I thought this would give me latitude to write about anything. So I thought of So and So Farm, or Place, or Park, or Terrace. But nothing seemed right. About 3 weeks ago, I was camping at Camp Chingachgook in Lake George, NY, and came across a family of mergansers crossing a pond. Luckily I had my camera and got a shot. And luckily, it occurred to me to call my blog Merganser’s Crossing. Once that was settled, I could move forward. Thank you to all who have visited. I’m eternally grateful to each and every one of you!
