Letters to a Young Poet
Updated to share my journal entry:
I look at this photo, a photo taken at the marsh on the backside of the property and realize that after all the years of rushing and wondering, of stress and worry, of questions gone unanswered, I am now at peace, not only in my world, but deep in my heart.
