Lord Give Me Strength

By markash
I've been having a stressful time of things lately what with house selling/buying troubles and problems with work etc.It feels like the world is against me, so it was with great relief that i managed to squeeze an early morning trip out to the east coast( A 2 hr drive from home)with the camera last Sunday morning. I was on the beach awaiting sunrise and could see for a couple of miles either side of me,and found that i was the only soul around. In that cold, lonesome moment i could almost feel all the stresses and strains seep out of me,absorbed by the rising sun on the horizon. This is almost an emotional shot for me, for it represents how i was feeling at time somehow,strange but true. Anyway, the therapy worked and i drove home with a smile on my face ready for another couple of rounds in the ring, with LIFE.

Apologies for the essay, and thank you very much for looking.

Me too!...Smile

I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes being on the coast especially when few other are around is a very peaceful time. A great de-stresser.
