This is where I would like to be. It is the place I imagine I could lose the tension in my shoulders and the furrow in my brow. It is where my sense of awe and wonder were awakened. When we left I knew that I would return, if only through these pictures, because I love to wake up my sense of awe and wonder. I knew these images would trigger a healthy heart rate, relaxed breathing, and calm my mind.
All I have to do is focus on the memories.
Remember the details.
The tensions of today, the things I did and did not do, the worries about what is wrong, what can go wrong, what went wrong... I need to put all of it aside and remember Switzerland.
I miss all things Swiss... all the things we saw and did.
Even the things we did not do... I could ride from lake to lake.
I would happily take the drive again, from Triberg to Brienz. Through those tunnels, and round and round the mountains.
I need a Swiss nap.
I would like to walk in a garden, pick peas, pull weeds...
Shhhh... I think I might actually be meditating.
Peace of mind.
And farm animals... I am feeling better already.
I can almost hear the lake lapping against the stone wall.
Excuse me while I put my feet up and enjoy this moment, again.
