I feel blessed that I get to live here. I’m truly grateful for it. I never get tired of walking or riding the bike along the lakes here with or without taking pictures, but taking in all the beauty and silence. In particular today, I had a magic moment in the afternoon, when I sat in that wooden “chair” that’s among the picture, enjoyed the warmth of the sun on my face, a breeze and the soft sounds of little wavelets collapsing on the shore. There was bird song and the sound of the wind and waves and for a while I allowed my mind to become totally quiet and drift away, just listening to those sounds. This is wonderful and the healing quality of such moments is very powerful. Those are the moments that I feel some peace inside of me, moments filled with reassuring peace and love and appreciation for this wonderful mistery of breathing and living. I hope, you can dream yourselves to these places and into these moments when looking at my pictures.
