On Tilghman Island, there's water everywhere. It defines the land, limits the roadways, edges the back yards. It's home to birds and ducks, egrets and ospreys, fish and crabs, frogs and turtles. Sound skips over its surface, and light touches it and bounces, bringing sky to earth.
At dusk on this evening, while I painted, the twilight glowed pink and cream, and the shadows gathered in the tussocks of grass in the salt marsh. Sky and air grew soft and sweet until light and sensation seemed nearly the same thing.
On an island, when there's peace, it is a peace like no other.
