I’d like to depart from my usual fare to respond to a request from a reader who has suffered a tragic loss, and who is looking for some inspiration and comfort in a trying time. I took this image recently and had named it after a quote from Normam Maclean, which I share below. The quote seems appropriate somehow—I hope it brings some measure of peace in this trying time. The image was taken at sunrise on the Atlantic Ocean from Assateague Island National Seashore in Virginia. “At sunrise everything is luminous but not clear. It is those we live with and love and should know who elude us. You can love completely without complete understanding.” —Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories (1976).
