The Spark

Lake at Dawn - Image c Lynda Lehmann

THE SPARK

 Creativity is the tiny voice that sings "I am" in the gloom of the darkest night.  
It is the song of the soul, revealing itself, 
reveling in tiny moments of truth.

Creativity is the pulse that quivers with hope in the rubble of man's discontent, 
and the flame of commitment in the rearing of a child.

Creativity lays a gentle sheen on the tired world
 on a moonless night, filling 
hollows and thickets and stark rooms 
with murmurs of quiet inspiration.

Creativity quells the thirst for empty pleasures and 
rides the waves of painful days.  

It fills old wounds and heals them.

It lights and smooths the steepest path.

It is the balm of my soul, my intention, my purpose and passion.  

Creativity is the Light of my life.

Here are a few photos of one of our favorite places in Acadia.  Sand Beach is easily accessible from the Park Loop Road and is one of the most serene and scenic of the spots we visited.  Looking at the tranquil surface of the azure water, one could hardly believe that the flow in this cove was attached to the ocean!  I'm sure it kicks up at times, but on a calm day the tranquility of the place is spellbinding.  I've been there only in September but I'm sure that in the summer months it's a great place to swim, kayak, or just take the kids for a day on the beach.

Add to the sensuous curve of the beach the soft white sand, the influx of turquoise sea, and the majesty of the surrounding cliffs crowned by mixed boreal and hardwood forest, you've got the ingredients for magic.  I can envision spending many days there, watching the infinite movement of the water and its slightly more chaotic, hissing and foaming entry into the clusters of huge boulders at the edge of the beach, while the enchantment grows.

I apologize for the short post, but better short than not at all.  I hope you enjoyed the photos and that you get to visit Acadia one day, if you haven't already.
