Driving home on a gray November day, I stop on the side of the road and step out of the car to be present to the soft fading light in the reflection of the setting sun; and a tiny spec of a waxing moon high above the horizon. In the stillness, I could feel the landscape gently letting go of the day, just as I was letting go of my busy day in the presence of it's last beautiful illumination.
"Presence is alive. You sense and fell presence; it comes towards you and engages you. Landscape has a vast depth and subtlety of presence. The more attentive you are, and the longer you remain in a landscape, the more you will be embraced by it presence." John O'Donohue, Eternal Echoes.
