Her Peace


“There’s a magic in the dark of night.
It’s a feeling if going home.”

There’s something about gazing out into the infinite expanse of the sea. But not just anytime. There’s a magic in the dark of night. Those gentle waves illuminated by a full moon. It’s a feeling of going home, when the eyes focus on that little strip of light, fading off into the distance. That’s the power of the pale blue glow of the moon shining on the waves. And whenever you feel lost, just look at her beautiful face in the sky and what she illuminates beneath her. If you’re lucky enough to look out into the ocean at the same time, you’ll know what peace feels like.
