In a week overloaded with challenges, stress, and entirely too much work, where the ordinary suddenly goes off track, I’ve been in search of a bit of serenity.

Thankfully, I’ve found it in stolen moments.

The sun rising over ice shacks on a quiet river.

The meandering path for snow melt working its way into the sea.

Contemplation on a spring-like February day.

The shadow of Cadillac Mountain through the stark frame of winter trees.

Stolen moments with my daughter – the best balm for my soul.
