The concept of transformation and renewal through light over a lake is akin to the grace of living. Sunrise at dawn sets nature abuzz with excitement, the silence broken with the exuberant cries of life on the wind, the stillness of the water is set in motion again, and light washes over all bringing hope.
When dusk arrives, and the sun lowers behind the trees, the world is again transformed. It is at this precise moment when the lake become still again, and the stars take their place both above and below, in the reflection of the water, that we realize that a billion suns have now risen to comfort and inspire us.
The stars are beacons of joy, sentinels of time, illuminating our dreams until with the dawn, we again open our eyes and are remade and the waters stir again.
