I close my eyes, and I’m struck by the stillness. I’m barely a hundred feet from shore, and it sounds crazy to say it, but it’s as if the water has dampened all of the energy flowing out from the land and the bustle of the world beyond. And it strikes me what these places have in common: that combination of power and peace, what we feel in that moment when it’s just us and nobody else in the world.
