“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious,
too greedy, or too impatient.
‘One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach –
waiting for a gift from the sea.”
(Anne Morrow Lindbergh)

This is the shower I loved.
As I shot the sunrising to the northeast
(because the sun moves in that direction from my vantage point in summer),
this shower was approaching from the south.
Tiny drops announced its arrival.
Tiny drops became bigger drops.
I ducked under a walkway and sat down at the base of a sand dune.
It felt good, the wind and light rain.
I laughed watching the pelicans, terns and gulls
feast on the running bluefish
as the rains kept them company.
The shower was short lived.
Pulling myself out of my lair I continued my camera-play.
Sunrise is fun.

Dead snake on the road.
Raindrop patterns in the sand.
Sudsy waves breaking.
Sand cool to the touch.
Rain shower coming from the south.
Ducking underneath a walkway.
Laughing at myself.
Pelicans, gulls and terns feasting on bluefish.
Shoot the sunrise many times.
I am not lofty.
I am merely an observer.
“Never lose an opportunity
of seeing anything beautiful,
for beauty is God’s handwriting.”
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
It’s raining today. Nothing like rain at the beach. It drives the crowds away and cleanses the air. The Earth takes in the clean, fresh water and plants rejoice in the moisture. I thrive in this abundance. The peace it brings, the nurturing it brings as Spirit washes us clean. Enjoy this day.
We just returned from vacation in Colorado. I love the beach but desired to see a completely different landscape. You can’t get more different than the Rocky Mountains. I saw a wild moose! And elk! Wanted to see a black bear but no such luck. Nor did I see the longhorn sheep or mountain goats, but had fun looking.
Those mountains are gorgeous. Humbling. Massive. Those ponderosa pines blow me away. We visited Garden of the Gods and Pike’s Peak. The best part was simply choosing a direction and driving mountain roads. The views! The snow!
We as individuals are served well by immersing ourselves into nature….where there’s no service to our phones … and breathe it all in. We are so tiny and the earth is so large. My belief is that Mother Earth will survive us, despite our attempts to kill it off. She will eventually shake us off and live her own life free from the fleas of humanity for her days are numbered, too.
“We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one.”
Jacques Yves Cousteau
I confess feeling hopeless today. Hopeless for our planet and for its people. Recently, I heard a scientist on NPR talk about climate change and how we are past the point of no return. “Get used to doom,” he said. I have been disheartened ever since. How does one “get used to doom?” I’m no good at that, being the eternal optimist that I am. So this morning I feel conflicted and hopeless.
“No one saves us but ourselves.
No one can and no one may.
We ourselves must walk the path.”
