Instead of sharing an update this week I am participating in a photography challenge which should give you a good idea of what my week looked like. The challenge is sponsored by Nancy Merrill and anyone can join. She announces the subject each Thursday and participants have until the following Thursday to share their posts. The subject this week is Water.
Water is essential to our well-being. Not just the life sustaining properties of drinking water, but the restorative powers of the sound, movement and feel of water.
Imagine standing before a majestic waterfall, immersing yourself into a liquid pool of refreshing clear waters or sitting by an ocean as the waves gently caress the shore. Peaceful, gentle, calm are words that comes to mind when I think of those experiences. Water captivates, excites our senses and transforms like no other natural resource. Being in, on, under or just observing water makes me feel happier.
Some of these photos are from my archives, but all are representative of my life long love affair with water.
This past week, Malcolm and I have spent a lot of time at the beach or enjoying a sunset by the river. The rains have subsided and the humidity is tolerable most evenings, especially when there is a slight breeze. We arrive around 6:00 p.m. and typically have it all to ourselves until well after dark. It is a pleasant way to spend the evening while maintaining social distancing.
Sometimes it takes surrender to see things clearly. Water helps me do just that. How about you? Do you have a peaceful place to quiet your mind and enjoy solitude.
