Corner View Wednesday: place of relection




A place that incorporates the element of moving water brings me the most inner peace. The coast would be my first choice, with the combination of the sound of crashing waves, the feel of sand between the toes, and the salty smell of seawater. But I can find renewal at a creek side, under the shelter of the porch in a downpour, or even immersed in the flowing faucet of a bathtub. Water soothes my soul, and brings balance to me. We just returned from a trip to the beach, and I plan to embrace the peacefulness of that experience in my thoughts for many days to come.

oh yes, i wrote the beach, but a lake , a river and even the rain. or maybe exactly the rain, the sound of it, the feeling, when walking through it.

Thank you for your nice comments - the experience at tracher training has been an otherworldy experience on many levels, yet it touches on such a personal note.

We used to live in southern California and we have always enjoyed afternoons spent at the beach in Carlsbad. When the day is done, we drive away with sand still on our feet (and in a lot of cases, in our swim trunks!).
