the dock at squam lake: where I want to be right now

contented.  completely.  taken with iphone

During Squam Art Workshops my good friend (oh, my soul) asked, "What's your stress level right now? Zero to ten?"

Can you guess what I said?

I'll give you a hint: I said zero.

When I grow up I'm going to live on a lake where I can watch the sunrise and sunset on my dock every morning and night.

It is its own meditation.  It exudes peace. So much so that just being there my soul reaps joy and contentment.

The water drew me in and I had to jump into its lapping hypnotics.  As I floated there, my heartbeat and breathing were magnified and the sounds of self became soothing.  The birds flew in clusters against a canvas of changing clouds above me and I knew I was in the right place.

i'm totally mesmerized by the patterns on the lake in all of these photos and they are so bringing back really lovely memories!

i hope to get to hang out with you at a squam again some day!

I want to go too! It looks beautiful. I'm anxious to see the other great things you created there besides a rested soul.
