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.
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?
An not only that, on reaching the estuary we get to have a choice of how to get from there to the sea 🙂
Great metaphor, Val!
