My Little Piece of Solitude in a Busy World
With life pulling us in so many directions at once, and expecting so much from us, it’s nice to take a few minutes and get away from it all. This little nook in a big waterfront park is just that place for me.
Sitting by the water, I can ease my mind, let go of the day’s stresses and reflect on all that is good in my life. As I listen to the water lap against the rocks, I give thanks for all of my blessings.
Watching the boats and jet skis has always been an outlet for me. As I sit here listening to and watching the Gulls, Terns, Ducks and Cormorants, I find my troubles disappearing into the water. The mood is broken only for a moment as a passing train goes by. I am easily brought back into my moment of serenity as I take in all of the beautiful wild flowers along the shore.
Sadly, this time must end and I must go back to my daily grind. I find it a little easier having had my moments of peace by the waters edge. I’d like to say I’m totally refreshed, but I’ll take it when and where I can get it.
As the sun begins to set over the river, I head home. I’d love to hear your methods of detaching from the hustle and bustle of life. If you like what you’re reading, please sign up to receive new posts right in your mailbox. Be sure to check out my other posts as well. Have a great day!
