I love the water. I love everything about it. I like how it looks with the moon shining on it. I love how it sounds when waves are churning it. I adore the way it feels sluicing over my body when I'm in it. I know nothing about the signs of the Zodiac, but I know I should have born under the water sign.
Being near the water gives me a sense of peace. I feel at ease. It allows me to calm my mind and think about things that need thinking about. It opens my heart for deep prayer. I suspect some of its charm is that it drowns out the incessant ringing in my ears! I have tinnitus and I noticed yesterday that when I'm at the beach, I don't hear the ringing as the crashing waves drown it out! Yet another reason to love the sea.
We went to Ft. Myers Beach yesterday and it was a picture perfect day. I met a Weight Watcher friend and had a nice chat. They left for a boat ride and we took a walk on the beach. I saw all kinds of different shells and even a horseshoe crab. I think it might have just been the body, but still...it was all in one piece. I studied it. I saw shiny shells and dull shells and tons of sea grape. I walked in the water and enjoyed the sun on my face. The breeze was cool, the sun was warm, the water cool & crashing. It was a great day.
Today I sat in the swing by our little lake here. Again, the sound lulled me. It just washes my cares away. It's cathartic.
I like it. I like it a lot.
Why yes, I do believe
