There’s no doubt in my mind.
No matter what’s going on in my life, getting out there, alone, with my camera, and searching for nature’s beauty…
Ready for whatever comes next.
Just a simple walk.
Out the door. 😉
I went in search of peace this week. All week long I kept hearing that song over and over again that I knew as a child, I’ve got peace like a river, peace like a river in my soul.
The tide was unusually high at Forest Beach marsh when I arrived there just before sunset on Thursday. The water was a deep, moody blue and the marsh grass a burnt cinnamon color. A sinking sun seemed eager to head to bed for the night as it sent its long shadows out across the marsh.
It was right there in front of me, a gift from a tiny gaggle of geese. Flowing just like a river in my soul.
It has been a time of upheaval both in the weather patterns here on the Cape, and in my own life as well.
Last evening, after the recent storms within and without, I went to the shore in search of peace.
And there, as the sun was setting, I found the inner calm that I lacked in reflective pools…
Among the shells…
And along the jetties where others, too, seemed to be finding their own moments of reflection and pause.
I was pleased to see that in my recent absence the marsh had been slowly pulling on its luminous autumn garb, one blade of golden grass at a time.
Tomorrow will come soon enough, and I’ll dig in and face it all again, I told myself.
But for right now, let there be peace…
