It's been an unexpectedly hectic week, full of obligations that pull you from one moment to the next. I often find myself flipping through photos of past travels to help bring my mind to a peaceful pace at the end of the day, and came across these two similar photos that both help me take a deep breath and move on with a calmer perspective. The first is from my 2009 trip to Bainbridge Island, off the coast of Seattle. The second is from Swakopmund, Namibia almost exactly a year ago. I hope they bring a peaceful moment to the middle of your week, as well!
