Today I reconnected with a friend from long ago and members of her family. What a great thing, to find out that after all these years we can still have a vibrant friendship.

We had lunch on the banks of the Withlacoochee River, west of Ocala. Here's a picture of the river—a reminder of our connection to the real Florida that extends beyond the borders of Disney World, major metropolitan areas, and strip malls.

I feel sorry for the folks who visit our state who never get far enough away from the attractions and the cities to see the real jewels of the Florida landscape.
