This morning’s sunrise offering.
People ask why the ocean matters to me so much. Why, as soon as I leave, do I long to return.
It is here that I sense the Oneness of this planet. The sun that rises every morning. The water that has traveled the world carrying to this shore it’s creatures and plant life. Carrying with it the history of this place we call home.
As I stand on the sand listening to the gulls overhead and the gentle crashing of the waves, peace fills my Soul. Within the roar there is a beautiful silence. Yes, I am at peace here.
The other question I’m asked is why, then, don’t you move here? Maybe someday. But, really, I never want to take this for granted.
I want to always be excited about life and to experience the feeling of gratitude that mornings like this bring.
So, for now, I am content to find peace in the roar of the morning tide.
From my heart to yours, Diane
