Broiling ocean wave
Creeping up to lick the sky
True blue foam and sun
So much has been said about the visiting of friends, playing of music, eating in restaurants and riding of motorcycles. I haven't mentioned the Redwood Trees or the magnificent Pacific Ocean that I found when I arrived at the West coast. Visits to and through the Rocky and Sierra Mountains, Great Plains, Great Basin and miles of desert that had to be crossed to get there as well.
This scene is at the Pacific Ocean. It was a perfect day with bright sun. The fog bank was staying way out off shore. Tide was coming in and whipping up a froth on the black sand beach. The sky was bluer than blue.

Water licks the sky
Foamy cover at the beach
Black sand blue sky sun
There is no way I would get out to the end of the land and not visit the water, Mother Earth's life blood. I washed my crystal in the foamy edge where the water comes and meets the land beneath my feet. I then let the crystal dry in the bright sun. This is said to rejuvenate its power.

I took a few stones from the water's edge, all rounded at the edges and none larger than a fifty cent piece. I envisioned a small tower or inukshuk I might make from these small rounded pieces of mountain.
Funny thing is, these wonders, rocks, trees, plants, animals and water are all around us. I seem to see the big view more clearly when I travel, yet I also see it in my own back yard every day. When the sun rises, when it sets and the time in between. Even the darkness shows me special wonders in the sky, and within reflections, I see shadows and glistening nearer the ground.
I believe the steadiness of nature is what allows the other stuff, like music and bike riding, to happen. It is this steadiness that tempers all of what mankind is doing as it goes on constantly no matter what we try to do to encourage or discourage it.
Much Peace to All
