On a dreary gray winter day in lower Michigan one thing that makes me happy, and yes serene, is a walk in the woods with my girl.
For this assignment I originally considered a vast ocean or Great Lake beach, the wide open spaces of middle Michigan farm country, cross country skiing in the deep woods, even the ancient porch swing on the family farm. But when it comes down to it what makes me serenely happy right now, right here at home, was spending time with my Katie-girl in the silent, snowy woods.
You can see other interpretations of serenity at the original post. Or if you’re short on time and not feeling all that serene, here, here and here are a few of my favorites. And make sure you look at this one too. Oh…and don’t miss this one.
OK I’ll stop, even though it’s hard. What does serenity mean to you? Share a little of it with us; we can all use as much serenity as we can find.
Don’t you think?
