Divine Light

A rare treat yesterday that I was out and about without Leo in tow..the perks of visiting my parents, always willing and eager babysitters!  So after a luxurious couple of hours of running errands by myself, I decided to visit my favorite spot where the view of the mountains and lake are breathtaking.  

It's a local secret that as beautiful as this city is during the bustling summer months, as the tourists leave and summer businesses pack up for yet another year 
there is another kind beauty that emerges.  
The beaches that played host to sunburnt families, tired moms and screaming kids during the long, balmy days now have a chance to 
slow down and breathe the crisp, mountain air once more.  
The water turns dark and unfriendly, a stark contrast against the brilliant white snow caps along the mountain tops 
where the occasional breaks of sunlight through the low lying clouds 
casts a streak of light 
so divine 
that it would make even a non-believer 
almost believe..

On days like these, I wonder why I ever left here.  

Where do you go to find yourself when you're feeling a little lost?

Where do you go to listen to yourself when the world seems to drown your voice?

Moon River

Sterling, Moonstone and Lolite

Moon River, wider than a mile, 
                                                                                             I'm crossing you in style some day. 

Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker, 
wherever you're going I'm going your way. 

Two drifters off to see the world. 
There's such a lot of world to see. 

We're after the same rainbow's end
waiting 'round the bend, 
my huckleberry friend, 
Moon River and me.
