January 18th, 2011 – Beside The Still Waters

Every once in  a while I’ve come across an urban  scene or place that I wish I could have all to myself for a little while. With the fall color in full glow, this pond at the Arboretum was not likely  free of people for very long.  A few moments of serenity were enjoyed  in between the passing strollers and photographers though. Just long enough to pause with a little  gratitude for the blessings in life.
