Serenity is subtle
The sensation enters my eyes, ears and nose, spreads throughout my mind and body – fills me with peace and asks nothing of me.
Sometimes it comes to me in soft pastels with gently lapping water, or suffused in mist.
At other times I experience profound tranquillity surrounded by vibrant living color and rushing water.
Whether by a stream, at a lake or the ocean, the sound of water always soothes me. As a tribute to my mother, who passed in 1996, I built a pond and waterfall in my back yard. She too, loved the sound of water, the scent of fresh air, and the beauty of nature.
When I’m home, I find serenity sitting right here.
