During spring break a few weeks ago, my family decided to go on a mid-week getaway at a secluded resort in Austin, Texas. Barton Creek Resorts was beautiful, surrounded by flourishing plants. Greenery pervaded the acreage as we had a front-view of the golf course from our window. This technology-free vacation was exactly what I needed to reconnect with my family and take my mind off of worldly stress. I left that back at home. There was a cute nature trail and mini-golf course right by the outdoor pool on the cliff overlooking the large bodies of water and surrounding mansions. The sight was breathtaking. I finally had my chance to eat out for almost every meal, trying new varieties like Vietnamese Pho and Japanese California rolls.
The aqua hues intermingle harmoniously,
as they prepare themselves for an expedition across the cataract.
Where this fleeting journey will disperse them,
they leave to the greater forces.
The heavens open, and my mouth remains agape as the thought arises, “How beautiful is this sight. I would be lucky if I even got the slightest sniff of this paradise I’d like to call home someday.”
