The cool water reflected the azure sky as I drifted relaxed and calm. The temple filled me with a sense of serenity that I could find no where else. This place so far from my normal daily life of need and want filled me with peace. No snow, no ice and no one yelling at me to get things done.
Wish that I could stay in this quiet place. To lie in the sun and listen to the water lap against the stone would be heaven. But it is just a dream for palm trees do not grown on ice.
