Feels like Lake Windermere
I've had this live video feed running in the corner of my desktop this morning. It's the ferry crossing lake Windermere in the Lake district in Cumbria.
More and more I seem to be able to connect with feelings of things, and today feels for me similar to the day Lauralea and I spent out on this lake with Rachel.
We were just across the lake from this point, and you can even see a bit of where we walked and explored, late that early July evening.
It was not a particularly warm day, just nicely comfortable. I remember low clouds in the sky making the light muted and all manner of blue.
There were only a few boats on the lake, as the evening progressed and the clouds grew. most of the boats were already docked for the night.
It was a most lovely, calm evening. I took many pictures I remember, because I was trying desperately to capture something. The light, the feeling, the moment. I'm not sure what it was but even now as I look back, the feeling is still there.
Calm. Peaceful. Curious.
The three of us found a local pub that served the best food.
Fish and chips and mushy peas.
Such a beautiful part of the world.
Today I'm remembering it, and even today, seven months later, it is a blessing to me.
The calm, the peaceful, the curious. The same feelings I had there, are with me today.
