Finding Serenity in a Desert Sunrise

Finding Serenity in a Desert Sunrise

Finding Serenity in a Desert Sunrise

Short and sweet post to share the weekly photo challenge theme Serene.

With one more week of classes for which to prepare final grades, a birthday to celebrate (mine), and the inevitable push of the holiday season now here, finding moments of serenity will be good for my soul. Sometimes I have to stop what I’m doing and get my second wind!

Last October, we spent a long weekend with good friends in Helendale, California, in the Mohave Desert. We stayed in a vacation home and woke up to this incredible golden sunrise.The rising sun illuminated the homes across the lake (made up by the Mohave river aqua-fir). Hundreds of “mud ducks” serenely floated on the calm water.

Not shown in the photo is the lovely deck where we could just sit quietly and take it all in.

I hope you can find some serene moments as the holiday season approaches.

  2. It’s getting busy, isn’t it, Terri? I’m sure it won’t be long before the blogging world slows down for the holidays. Then, hopefully, we can all find some serenity. Love your festive signature at the end of the post. Care to share how you did it? πŸ˜€
    Happy Birthday (when it arrives). πŸŽ‚

  4. Hi Terri! Yes, I think that it is very important that all of us find a way to find serenity during the month ahead. And I so agree that nature is a perfect place to find it. Thanks for sharing your photo and reminding us of things to look for in the days ahead. ~Kathy
