I HAVE DISCOVERED OVER THE YEARS that most of us have a secret spot to which we are especially attracted. It could be a fishing hole where a large-mouth bass has hidden for years, or an abandoned old orchard that produces an abundance of morels in early May. My secret spot is a quiet stretch of beach running along Lake Michigan.
Reverence comes to me as I think of it. It is where I go to sit and organize my private thoughts and where I seek from nature its soothing grace. I marvel at its changing face produced by shifting sands and windswept grasses. I take it all in fully appreciative of its healing ways.
It is located between Chicago and the Mackinac Bridge and that’s as far as I will go in revealing its location.
I hope you understand my desire for privacy and trust you too will find your own secret spot.
My Secret Spot
A sandy beach is my secret spot
Where I come and face my many thoughts.
I listen to the water’s soothing waves
So thankful for nature’s healing ways.
