C is for Calm
Walking around a wildlife refuge has a very calming effect on me. The sounds of the birds, the rustle of the breeze in the trees and the grasses, the smell of scents emitted by the plants, and the reflections in the water all play a part.

There is something so serene about seeing a perfectly raked sand garden. It is very restful to the eye.

The sound of the waves approaching the shore with a perfectly calm sea in the background is so beautiful and calming to my soul.
Whenever I go into this temple, I feel a special kind of peace and look forward to going there as often as I can.

I love the message at the top of the arch at the border between Canada and the United States of America. It says, "Brethren Dwelling Together in Unity." I think that this is a wonderful message and reminder to all people on earth.
