Autumn At The End Of The Road

Something miraculous happens to me every time I come to the water's edge.  It doesn't matter whether the day is vibrant blue or solemn grey.  A change takes place inside me; internal restraints slacken, a space opens, my heart relaxes and my mind unfetters.  The expansive sky and stirring water remind me how little I am, how silly my cares.  And then conversely, as the salt air runs fresh into my lungs I am revived and  I turn back to the beauty of the land and my life.
