The "Leila V"

Just found out I needed a name for my kayak.  She will be henceforth be the "Leila V" to honor my 95 year old mother, Leila Vitalia Halverson Ellingson, who introduced me to poetry.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

  1. Be sure to let us all know when you expect to pass through the Twin cities. I will find a way to say hi if at all possible.

  2. Just found out about your "pilgrim paddle" while on the Trinity website. As a paddler and a pilgrim, I wish you "buen camino, peregrino!"
