Do you remember Jerry Stiller in Seinfeld? “Serenity Now!!!!!!” He was supposed to say that when his blood pressure would go up. Instead, he screamed it which probably didn’t help a bit. I’m going through the same thing as my blood pressure goes up and I am to “zone out.” Like my first photo, I think I can see Serenity from where I am but I can’t quite get there from here. Always something in the way, bars to progress. Doesn’t matter, I keep looking. I went to Burke Lake this morning. I’d like to say early but early is a function of time and time is on vacation. Or at least that must be true since I can’t ever find the time. errrrrr. The rain coming down was very soft and almost imperceptible on the lake surface. When I was walking to the shore, the trees in the first photo seemed to bar my way…the stark vertical contrasted sharply against the shimmering lake. The lake seemed peaceful. That agitated me. I left.
