A place not visited often. A divisor of nations where they come together. A place of peace for those who appreciate it and will seek it out. A road not traveled often. And, on a river that divides USA and Canada. I find myself immersed, consumed and overwhelmed.
Tranquility is what this place means to me. Time alone was one of the things I was seeking. Silence that was louder that I could talk, is what I found. The peacefulness in the power of water and rock that senses soak up.
Two worlds apart, but still together. That is one of the things I thought of while sitting here and when looking back to the time spent there.
Sitting in the USA, on the bank of a river that pounds the senses and still calms the soul with Canada on the other side.
Times like these are treasures to enjoy. Life is full of these things. Looking into this picture, there is no one thing that made up the experience that brought me to this moment captured with the camera. Everything seen, heard, felt, smelled, and tasted made up this experience.
For an hour my experiences changed. Amazement, wonder, fear, filled my mind and emotions. Who has been here before? Who has hunted here before? Were treaties, weddings, friendships, heartaches, acted on, or pondered here?
Everyone who sat here has experienced something similar, yet something different from other guests.
One person observes experiences in one way, while someone else may see things slightly different.
Seeing with your life experiences is a lot like seeing with a camera. Where you are standing is part of your vision. Moving to the left or right, or up and down changes things.
Time will change things too. The more time you spend somewhere, the more you may be able to see. Looking, walking and sitting someplace takes time. Time that allows you to experience.
This is a place of power and peace. A place of comfort and refuge from the daily life. God made places like this, where we can view His mighty creation, and be in awe of of His power, intelligence, and the peace He can bring.
A song comes to mind “Our God is an Awesome God” . “He Is”
