A Trough Between Two Ridges

A trough of low pressure on this day brought rain to the area and helped to create this serene space. The view of Silver Peak, Catalina Island from Mulholland Drive on the mainland reveals a calm, quiet and peaceful Pacific Ocean in between.

Nature offers itself to our perceptions and what’s so innately wonderful is that as much as we may learn about the existence beyond ourselves, we invariably learn about ourselves in the process. I’ve realized, while we may seek beauty and inspiration from above, we sometimes forget that the search for inspiration is many times driven by our moments in solemness or despair… in the troughs of life. The fact that we are capable of pulling through even in our worse trials is the beauty of who we are. I remind myself that as we see the beauty and inspiration above ourselves, there is also beauty and inspiration below as seen and remembered from our moments on our mountain tops… The beauty and inspiration of humbleness.
