There are places that inspire us, views that break our hearts and gentle spots where we want to set ourselves down and rest for a long while. There are places that stay with us long after after we leave them behind. They call us back, as if to say there is something we missed, more that needs to be seen or heard or felt.
This was my view from room 307 at The Golden Arrow Hotel in Lake Placid, New York.
Mirror Lake held me for a moment and reminded me that you can feel completely at home in far off places. Letting go of the stress of daily life, the worry over a future unknown and a past that can’t be changed, peace can be found.
It can be held, this peace, for a moment in the perfect reflection of beauty that has always been there, waiting to be seen.
