Last year, I described a spiritual experience I had on a summer evening. You can read about it hear. Just recently, I had another wonderful evening in August.

We live on a river, and my husband kayaks. The whole family waded into the river and all the kids took a turn at paddling a small kayak. The weather was perfect, not humid, no bugs taking bites out of us. The sun gilded the water, and my kids’ happy voices floated over the quiet river. I felt a wonderful peace and thought as long as people can still appreciate simple pleasures like this, we aren’t that different from all our ancestors. Moments like that summer evening feels timeless.
