After a soaking rain this evening,
a melancholy blue mist hovered
and turned the lakes around us
into beautiful reflecting pools.
My son and I drove around the area,
capturing pictures
of the world mirrored in water.

I was reminded how reflection
is among our greatest gifts.
The ability to look at where we’ve been
and remember what we’ve learned
provides us with the strength and wisdom
needed to forge ahead in life.
After every rain storm
comes reflection and rebirth.
