I need to remember that this place exists always.  This is one of my favorite places.  Early in the morning it's quiet and a mist comes up off the lake.  Sometimes there's a loon.  It's peaceful and big and it will exist long after I have gone.  I think that's why I like it so much.  It puts me in my place.

  1. I sometimes feel the same way about the fatigue of chemo. That while I lay there, the world just keeps spinning on without me. And yes....it does put me in my place, too.

  2. I am always deeply comforted when placed alongside nature in its grandest sense -- my own life, however precious, also deeply insignificant. Your photos are stunning --

  3. Where is the photo taken?

    I have always found my peace in the wilderness. I am never sure whether its the grandeur of nature itself or just getting far away from people. In either case, it is a sure-fire cure for almost everything that ails me.
