Thoughts While Creating

The endless wonders of the shore. 


Every year our family takes a vacation at the shore and it is during this time that I take my grandson on an early morning walk on the beach. He loves to see the lighthouse in all its majesty, standing tall against the cloud filled skies setting the backdrop for the tranquil scene. Puffy white clouds float by on the same winds that give lift to the sailing boats.


The mist coming off the beach fills the air with a freshness that matches the newness of the day. Waves wash onto the beach carrying to the shore any items left floating in the water. Seagulls flying overhead are calling to their friends to join the flock on their breakfast quest. This reminds me that we are to meet the rest of the family for breakfast at the boardwalk in a few minutes.


Before we leave, I take one last deep breath and pause to let my being fully integrate with the Spirit of the Shore. My Grandson ad I hold hands tightly as this moment etches itself forever into our memories.
