It’s been a wonderful two months on our private Island in the 1000 island NY. It started off tough with our brand new septic tank being washed away because of flooding. We also lost whatever leach field we had. We went to a new system which is a state of the art residential waste treatment plant. It involved installing a new fusion tank and pumping the affluent (grey water) to another part of the island. We had to create a leach field ten feet wide and thirty feet long. Finally we have our new system in place. This picture was taken from our back deck on our last night. A few of our island friends came over to have some last night toasts. Concentrating on writing and needing spiritual motivation, our island does the trick. We are blessed that my grandmother left the island to my parents, who wanted to leave it to my wife and I. We are now back in California, and time to get back to our creative lives.
