8 August

rain is falling this morning

the sky is grey and I think it shall rain most of the day

perhaps even a thunder storm later in the afternoon


it's a cleansing rain

and we welcome it this morning

i have the windows thrown open wide to let in the scent of the sea and the fresh rain 

the sound of the tide ebbing and flowing 
giving and taking away


i am sharing the early morning hours with wonder-boy. 

we sit in the front room in parallel  universes.

he on his device and me on mine

we enjoy the company of one another and are able to sit quietly together 

exchanging random bits of conversation
here and there and reaching out to each other with

the simple need to touch something solid in a world that seems to spin uncontrollably

sunlight peeks through the clouds in patches 

 shining on the porch and spotlighting the morning glory vines

they do not hurry in blossoming

they know that they will flower in due season


  1. Lovely! I really needed the encouragement of the first quote. A journey begins with one step! How often I lose sight of the many many steps that goes into reaching a goal. Thanks for sharing.

  2. Love this. Beautiful and calming. Thanks for sharing it!

  3. These are such lovely photos. I love your processing. One step at a time. . . :) Very nice.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
