Time to Observe and Appreciate

Our rental condo sits on a cliff overlooking the ocean.

The sound of the surf is always present.

The roar and hiss permeate both my sleeping and waking hours.

We plan our days loosely, making adjustments according to weather.

Most days we walk the beach, watching the waves and the surfers.

Sometimes we hike on bluffs where flowers bloom  in profusion.

 The ocean both mesmerizes and frightens me.

I'm wary and respectful as Nature reveals itself.

Near sunset one day, I notice a young couple on the beach in their wedding finery.
(Can you see how tiny they are in the vast landscape of the sea?)

I watch them dance to the beat of the waves.

I whisper many blessings to them for a happy and abiding union. 

Time to watch and listen and appreciate is my One Good Thing today. 

Thank you for visiting.
