Daily Practice 17/365

Untitled (click to see full image)

I took advantage of another break in the wet winter weather to visit a favourite spot for rest and contemplation. There's nothing particularly remarkable about this image, a panoramic view from Anderson Hill Park, or "Blueberry Hill" as it is more colloquially called. Yet the short hike up to the vista, and the opportunity to feel the sun on my face, was quite restorative. The view is looking south, across the Strait of Juan de Fuca, towards the distant Olympic Mountains. It is generally quiet here, an oasis in the middle of the south village, usually there are only a few dogs and their owners who've come for a ramble. A good place to gather thoughts and reflect on new ways of seeing.
