Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea ...

It was off the path, easy to miss. I wasn't supposed to stop. But I must, I thought. I was on an adventure. The windows down, faint clouds and a summer breeze, I slowed off the exit pondering where this round about exit with a fantastical title may take me. 

It was the first time I had driven that far up the coast. The first time my eyes laid on the cold waters near San Luis Obispo and the first time I drove without time. That exit proved to stop time that day allowing space and retreat from the road, a busy world and earthly thoughts. Wonder opened to heaven.

Yesterday, we drove up the coast. The exit, an absolute must. Once again, I pulled off the path. My own place of heaven. This time to share and revel and of course, stop time. Even if for a few minutes in a chilly wind and heavy clouds, it will always be mine.

though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake ... Selah.
