Peace on the boardwalk

The winter’s day seemed gloomy, with incessant rain and near-freezing temperatures. Great weather for staying inside. Late that evening the temperature finally dropped a couple of degrees and everything changed. The rain turned to snow, and I grabbed my camera and several layers of clothing and walked to the marina near my home. The waterfront boardwalk was covered in a layer of nearly pristine snow, though tracks showed two people and a dog had preceded me. I felt uplifted by the fleeting beauty (the snow would be gone the next morning) and somehow warmer as well. For the moment, I was content to soak in the wonder of this nocturnal moment, a grin on my face, though nobody else was around to see it. And a line from a well-loved poem came to mind, “For storm or shine, pure peace is thine” (Mary Baker Eddy, Poems, p. 79).
