* Life is like … an estuary

I will be away now until May 24, but wanted to share a photo of one of my favorite places in Scotland along with some beautiful reflections from poet and yogini Danna Faulds. Her words bring me to my Middle Ground – that special place of inner peace and connection.

Firth of Forth
The Firth of Forth. (Where the River Forth meets the North Sea in Scotland)

Estuary 

There is peace here, where the river

widens to meet the sea. The rapids

are past; the boulders and the rocky

places at last give way to a broad

and sweeping current, flowing

slowly into vastness. The river

moves silently, tastes the salty tide

that marks its demise, and slips

without a backward glance, into

the ocean’s infinite embrace.

This poem seems to be a touching metaphor for life itself as we go through its highs and lows and find peace.

How do these words and this metaphor resonate with you?
