There weren't many boats as the sun went down. One by one each had pulled up anchor and left for home. Finally, it was just me and my boat left. I turned off the music so Nature's own would be heard. Now the crashing of the waves, the lapping of water on the hull, and the breathing of the dolphins as they surfaced were the only sounds.
I shut my eyes and just listened for a minute. I pushed all the thoughts from my head, just wanting to blank out and let the peace of this place roll over me. It is easy to do this here but not so easy at other places. If I can hold the image of the sunset and the sounds in my head, then I believe that I can pause wherever I am, take a minute and feel peace of mind.
It has been a tiring couple of days. Not really bad just filled with information that I needed to process. Life is like that--one minute peace and the next agitation. But maybe I can create my own peace in the midst of agitation if I remember this moment.
