For those in need of a quiet place to savor a bit of peace in a challenging world.  This small church is nestled in the trees away from the busyness of urban living.

A Moment of Contemplation

To find a place that allows for a bit of solitude, to have a moment to gather in the beauty of all the nature that surrounds person, to just bask in the grandeur of a place on the shore of a fresh water sea.  This is such a place.

Boston marked the second anniversary of the 2013 marathon bombings on Wednesday, April 15 with a solemn remembrance that included a moment of silence, the pealing of church bells and a call for kindness.

The Salt Pond

Vacation and another early morning walk, this time along the Salt Pond.

Seriously! How could a person not feel more peaceful just by gazing upon this reflection?  I try to remember this lovely scene as I balance the demands of life and while I may not always balance them as perfectly as this reflection, I do know that life is good and I am fortunate.  I hope the same for you.
