For instant relaxation, close your eyes and transport yourself to a wooden bench, overlooking this view of the lily pond with the odd bullhead lily sporting its bright yellow, waxy bloom. A blue-winged dragonfly buzzes by. Chickadees chatter from the treetops. The sun, filtered gently by the trees warms your back while the breeze cools your brow. The earthy scents of wood and water and ripening salal berries waft by. You've brought a picnic of cheese and bread and fresh fruit. A Bald Eagle might just soar over the clearing if you watch closely.
All's right with the world.
