keeping the peace…

a quiet little place, well off the trail. If one can just sit, contemplate and unwind, it is a special little no name spot. One of many, up the Columbia River Gorge.

Solitude & Self-reflection…

“By all means use sometimes to be alone. Salute thyself; see what thy soul doth wear.”   George Herbert

East Lake (Oregon) at dusk. A distant forest fire & winds brought the smokey haze into the area.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
