Sharing the peace

The drive to the lake only lasts 10 minutes.  You’d think I’d make that effort more often, but I haven’t been there in months.  Yesterday the sunshine and warm temperatures hinted at spring just strongly enough to make me feel the yearning for peaceful waves and a walk down the nature trail, so I dragged my daughter and her dog (neither hard to convince) out for a walk.  The water level was up and the wind was up, so we were treated to the loveliest sound of splashing waves hitting the shoreline.  Gray and brown dominated almost the entire landscape, but a few dots of hopeful green peeked out, just enough to give us hope of coming spring.  Sure they were weeds, but they were still green!

Maybe that little fix of peace will last through the week, until I can sneak away from “real life” again.
