This is my take on ‘Serenity’ for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge.
Can you coax your mind from its wandering
and keep the original oneness?
Can you let your body become
supple as a newborn child?
Can you cleanse your inner vision
until you see nothing but the light?
Can you love people and lead them
without imposing your will?
Can you deal with the most vital matters
by letting events take their course?
Can you step back from your own mind
and thus understand all things?
Giving birth and nourishing,
having without possessing,
leading and not trying to control;
this is the supreme virtue.
-Tao te Ching by Stephen Mitchel
These photos were taken during a trip to Scotland, a country that offers breathtaking views – even with bad weather. Most photos were taken in the island of Skye, except from two photos taken in St. Abbs.
I made the sunset photo while crossing the North Sea by ferryboat from Holland to New Castle in England.
