Don’t miss it. (DOP #13 2017)

An overhead view of a wetlands my father and his father before him have worked on restoring.

I often get overwhelmed with all of the things that need to be done, especially during December, and I often forget to take a moment to experience peace instead of just writing or thinking about it.

Another aerial view of the wetlands. The way the sunset is striking the trees in the background is quite remarkable.

For me, I often find peace in taking photographs while I wander about in nature.  I don’t do it nearly enough, but when I do, I find some level of enjoyment in it.

The sun setting behind the Maumee river, near Antwerp.

As the sun set, the moon draws nearer to the horizon, it’s sharp crescent cutting through the soft clouds.

The moments I captured tonight could have been easily missed.  In fact, I almost didn’t even get out the camera tonight.  I new I had a bunch of catching up to do on my 25 Days posts, and I figured I should head back from work early and getting moving.

Peace is just as easy to disregard.

What if you chose to spend just a few minutes pursuing peace as you went about your day?  Pursuing peace instead of waiting for it to come to you.  Find something that you enjoy that makes you feel peaceful at the end of the day, and go do it.  Do it even when there is a small cost like cold hands, and a late start on some other project.

Don’t miss it.

Be sure to check out the other people on the journey with me at, or on our Facebook page.  There are some awesome people participating this year, and they all have something important to say.
