No words




I have been so determined to get back here and have something worthwhile to say.

 It's not that I have nothing to tell, it's that the the stories are stuck in my throat. Or is it that they are stuck in the moderating room, or have been left on the cutting room floor by a merciless editor?

Life has got me in a choke hold. One day I've got the tiger by it's tail. The next that tiger is swinging me by my Adam's apple.

Okay, that's weird.

One thing I'm sure of, I feel nothing, remotely, like the tranquil perfection depicted in this photograph I took at the lake the other morning.

As I gazed upon it, in awe, and snapped a photo of it, I was sharing, basking in the aura of peace that oozed out of ever molecule of stillness  around me. But now that I've pried myself out of that lazy, awe-struck limbo and back into the real world of PTA e-mails talking about First Day of School celebrations,  late bills and overdue calls to the vet,.....not so much.

Wouldn't it be nice if we could feel the way this photo makes us feel more often? I'm always trying to figure out how to do that. Even summers whiz by now, back to school is looming. *sigh* Thanks for the mini escape, it's an awesome photo. xo

That is one of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen.

Tranquility never seems to want to hang out, huh?

gorgeous photo. I seem to operate better during the crazies and forget to appreciate the tranquil when their happening. I'm always worried about what's next. Then I complain. It's a vicious cycle. I keep thinking I need a place to retreat to each year, like your lake. Somewhere I know I can go to relax...
