Every once in a while, enthusiasm jostles your life. There's the gentle version from seeing bean seeds poke leafy heads through the garden soil. But the intense kind, when the one and only goal wins the game, can rock your week.

Lake Superior and their excitement was obvious. They were on a 7,000 kilometre journey.
"We made three crossings the other day," he said, looking to the lake. "The wind kept us aware, kept us on our toes. How we go? The lake decides."
Joy is not to be stumbled upon
The group had left Sault Ste. Marie a couple of days earlier with enough food for 16 days, enough they figured to make it to Marathon, on Superior's north shore.

They must learn how to follow the signs and, like Yebo, how to listen. As I watched them paddle in the rise and fall of the waves, the guitar resembling a third passenger, their joie was infectious.
