There are times that we float around in the calm stillness, where barely a ripple can be found as the sun shines down on the surface, sparkling and twinkling a mesmerizing tranquility that almost lulls us into dreaminess; and then there are times when our little boat—our being-ness—finds its way into more turbulent waters, where the waves lap and come up over the edge, a bit too close for comfort, and the clouds move in casting a cool, ... {more please!}
