From time to time I write a post that is straight out of my journal. Hence, SOOJ. Here's a moment I thought I would share with you. I took the picture above just after writing this.

Roaring River State Park
I didn't get to my morning pages this morning as Jeffrey had breakfast ready when Sloane woke me with a kiss. Then, we rushed out the door to head off on our adventure. I was with Sloane at the playground when Jeffrey called me to come over.
Now here I sit on a set of steps leading down to the water. Nearby I can hear the constant slosh of water eddying downsteam. A ways upstream I can hear the steady, low roar of a river aptly named. In all of the world there's nothing I find so peaceful as sitting outside near moving water with a pen in hand, a journal on my lap, and a camera in my pocket.
Oh. The page is becoming polka dotted as the rain falls harder and harder. What a day!
So, tell me. What makes you feel peaceful?
