The tree of tran­quil­ity

Record Observer - - Opinion - By JUDY E. MELVIN EDELHEIT

At this mo­ment of time in our world to­day, we need to em­brace peace and find tran­quil­ity when­ever it is found by the sim­ple joy and beauty of mother na­ture.

Whether we fo­cus on a grain of sand, a blade of grass or faith in a tiny mus­tard seed and the early morn­ing sun­rises or sun­sets abound, then you will surely know that tran­quil­ity can be found.

This tree once stood along the shore­line of Ferry Point as a tes­ta­ment of a time here in Queen Anne’s County when it’s nat­u­ral beauty was once green with branches of shade. The tree is now weath­ered and bare, but it still stands strong against the tides of time bring­ing tran­quil­ity that can never fade.

“To the at­ten­tive eye, each mo­ment of the year has its own beauty, and in the same fields, it be­holds, ev­ery hour, a pic­ture which was never seen be­fore, and which shall never be seen again.” — Ralph Waldo Emer­son
