My Place of Zen
This is Minnehaha Creek, that runs over the falls, Minnehaha Falls, and then empties in the Mississippi River. Minnehaha Falls has been a place I visited a lot back home, when we lived not to far away growing up. As an adult I would visit even after we moved away from the area. It was near the airport so some days I would leave for work early to come to the Falls or just sit along the creek to think.
It may sound creepy but I used to go out to the cemetery where my grandparents were buried, and sit on the ground and look up into the big oak trees and think, and talk to my grandparents. If I was really stressed I would start to cry, which helped a lot. I always felt better after visiting both places.
Thanks for letting me share. I need a place like this near us here, to sit and think. Maybe I will just make this photo my computer background and stare at it when I am stressed out.
Have a great weekend, I have some ideas running through my head and I need to put them down on paper or on the computer to work out the details. remember to Stay Alert, and Safe.
