Early morning on the James River. (Click picture for larger view)
"Rivers are magnets for the imagination, for conscious pondering and subconscious dreams, thrills, fears. People stare into the moving water, captivated, as they are when gazing into a fire. What is it that draws and holds us? The rivers' reflections of our lives and experiences are endless . . ." ~ Tim Palmer, LifelinesEarly morning on the Colonial Parkway near Jamestown, Virginia and the water of the James River is calm, the sky clear. It is a cool, crisp autumn morning and as yet there are few cars traveling the two lane road and even fewer stopped at this scenic turnout. The sunlight glistens off the water and glares in my eyes and the silence is almost deafening, only broken by the occasional call of the hawk or the ever present seagulls. Time away from the bustle of traffic, the hustle and hurry of the city; time to be still and rediscover the magic and majesty of creation.
Everyone needs a place like this with time to think and reflect, regroup and rejuvenate; where's yours?
