Finding inner peace is not an easy task, and often times the path to it is fraught with despair. With the myriad of daily struggles that we all endure, and the unexpected arrival of ones that we have no control over, it is no wonder that finding inner peace is difficult, and some may even say impossible.
Take a few minutes and get away from it all, go sit on the seawall in the shade of a tree, or the lee of a rock, and stare at the seemingly boundless ocean, towards the distant horizon, let your mind wander, free from the stress that has a vice grip on your soul… just relax, find a touch of inner peace in a moment of outward calm.

Thanks for stopping by Daph 🙂
And so we photographers find our inner peace by observing and recording others’ finding theirs? 🙂
indeed Nik, indeed…. many times I’ve found myself at peace just taking photos 🙂
Hello Michael. Man it’s a beautiful photograph and the way you explain the photograph, shows you are not only a good photographer, but a good writer too. 🙂
Thanks for the kind words Cecil. I try to express way I see and feel, sometimes the words work, sometimes they don’t 🙂
Reminds me of the story of the Budda sitting under that tree for years, perhaps if he had sat beside the ocean under this tree, he would not have had to sit for so long?
Thanks Cynthia, I think each of us should be like the Buddha and seek in earnest what we hope to find. 🙂
Wise words accompanied by a truly peaceful image. Thank you for this touch of Zen this morning.
Thanks Cindy. Sometimes we all need to be touched by peace and tranquility, even if but for a moment 🙂
