I've been sick with a good cold the past week so I've been laying low. But today I felt well enough to head out and be in the quiet of nature, a place I feel most at peace and can recharge. That got me thinking about this photograph I just took. In one way it's a dog sitting on a log in a lake. But even more true it's how I feel about being knee deep in nature, how my soul finds rest out here, how sitting and being still is wonderful.
