I am thinking about the ocean. The way waves roll in, crest up and crash upon the shore. The way the ocean draws back as waves recede. And that quiet time between the waves, when the ocean lets us believe it is still.

I am thinking about life. The way good news pours in and crashes over us. The way bad news swirls about, threatening to pull us under. And the way most of life is that quiet time between the two extremes.

But even in that stillness, there is joy, not just contentment. In that quiet, there is gratitude and grace. In that lull, lies peace.

Hi KRL -
Yup, it's Acadia! Along Park Loop Road, out at Otter Point. On the lower left of the photo you can see the Ocean Path. It really is a spectacular park. We hope you and PJL get up there someday soon!
