Vonnie S's Thin Place
My Rock

It gave me a sense of serenity

that I didn’t have otherwise.

 

I came here a lot during my cancer treatments when I was in and out of the hospital for a year.

 

I would come down here and sit on the sea wall with the sun in my face and the breeze blowing. It relaxed me.   It made me feel peaceful.  It made me feel calm.  

 

It gave me a sense of serenity that I didn’t have otherwise and helped me get through a really rough time in my life. 

This is my rock, which is… my rock.  I call it my rock of life.  You just climb up… and you sit down… and you look out at the beautiful nature and the bird sanctuary across the creek.

It feels like a safe place for me.  A safe, sturdy place to contemplate life.  And I know it’s going to continue to be here for me as long as I’m here.

 

I’ve made a lot of life decisions sitting on this rock.
