Grace Which Offers Hope

Dourest Grey, Britannia Beach, Howe Sound, Sea to Sky Highway, British Columbia, Canada
Even in the dourest grey
There is a beauty
Calling me
Up to the light
It wrests a smile
From sadness
Which offers hope
In darkest place
There helps me cope
Then rise
Up into flight
On wing
Up to the clouds
And through them
The good
I soar
In peace

The drive along Howe Sound between Vancouver and Squamish, British Columbia, is my goto place of chill. A journey of quiet contemplation — or raucous music played at maximum volume — while traversing one of the most beautiful stretches of highway anywhere.

No matter how dark and dreary the drive, it is a place of peace and beauty for me.
