On our walk along the Mighty Mississippi, we come to this riverside glade, shimmering in the sunshine.
The wide and steady river rolls on past, and on the far bank we see an impressive stand of trees.
The river itself is a deep blue, reflecting the cloud studded sky above, and we can see just two old style boats going up-stream.
All is peaceful and calm, and our minds are clear of the everyday by this warm and friendly scene.

Evening brings an end to a busy work day, and we trudge our weary way home, head bowed beneath the worries and cares of our day.
Then we look up, and catch sight of the sun just vanishing below the horizon.
It is a subtle and intriguing sunset, with dark clouds spiraling above the village on the other bank, but above them white iridescent clouds shine with light with patches of darkening blue sky showing through. The water itself seems to be alive with motion, a mottled effect that reflects the fading sun in patches.
This day is almost over, its triumphs and disappointments will soon be fading memories. A new day, full of opportunities, will be here tomorrow. But for now it is evening and Nature has put on a light show just for us. We walk on homeward with a smile on our face and hope in our heart

The Mississippi River has many faces.
Our walk along the shoreline takes us really close to the water’s edge, and from here we can see nothing but calm water, reflecting the blue sky.
The river and the sky meet in a shoreline of sand and trees, and we are not really sure where the river is flowing, both banks seem to be the same.
As we stand and observe, we are aware of an intense peace, the only sound we hear being a slight gurgle from as the water passes over the stones at our feet.
We are warmed by the sun behind our back, and cooled by the water in front – we are at peace.
Every day the sun sets, this is just another day, another sunset.
And yet each sunset is different, each sunset is uniquely special.
As we sit and contemplate the sun sinking into the river, we are struck with awe at the routine magnificence of the sight. It is just another sunset, but this one is ours
