The rejuvenating powers of water are often taken for granted, ignored or not even considered a factor. Just being in the presence of it has provided me with more clarity on many of the issues that I found myself grappling with at the time throughout my life.
These pictures feature some of the most serene dumping grounds for the problems that have saw fit to cross my path, only to be drowned in the depths, thankfully.

I sat here transfixed by the sight, intoxicated by the sound of the water rushing by. I felt myself wishing that I could teleport myself here, whenever the weight of the world becomes too much to bear.

How often do we permit ourselves that time that we truly need to wrap ourselves around this journey we often mislabel as life?
Our time on this planet is temporary, but our ability to leave something lasting; something eternal that precedes our time here is often lost on many of us. During this journey of mine I have born witness to many efforts to reorient myself towards this realization, only to fall short of the goal.

When life ceases to make sense and routines threaten to drive a wedge between me and sanity, there are few courses of action.
When I was young, the frustrations of what I felt was out of my realm of control would often lead to tears of frustration and anger. As an adult, I've learned to embrace my journey with life and time, sometimes doing it begrudgingly.

Kilgore Falls has to be one my favorite places in Maryland… The only thing that you hear are the sounds of the falls & your thoughts.
No matter how many times I come here, the excitement builds up as I make my way towards it, like it is my first time bearing witness to its beauty.
Looking at it directly is cleansing, the air flowing from the water has a cooling effect. Having a seat in front of the fall is a requirement.
The view to the right of the falls is majestic as well. I am always awestruck whenever I take in the sight.
Making my way up to the top of the falls, always leads me to take seat so I can soak it all in. It is a 19 foot free fall but it seems higher than that.
Watching the water make its way towards the falls…
Looking up and across from the top of the falls… Hearing nothing but, solace.
The view from above… I sit in the same spot & close my eyes, letting the problems of the day, week & month, melt away.
