The ocean had brought me romance, solitude, joy, adventure and most importantly self love.
Symphonic sounds of waves crashing.
A HORIZON OF INSPIRING BLUES – –
Haunting. Pushing, pulsing, falling forward… the sun glowing over an endless stretch of sand and surf of the Pacific Ocean.
You know when you meet certain people
They are going to change your life as you know it to be.
In their presence worlds long forgotten leap forth
Awakening you to the truth of who you are.
An endless move over the ocean, across the increasingly rich shades of blues, through the light ethereal mists casting the water’s surface. Pure visual poetry signifying an eternity of limitless possibility calling forth another space beyond what is seen.
We met every Thursday for three years.
The conversations were broad and ranging,
We talked of owning the self, sharing the expansiveness
Of the present and living in the limitless possibility of oneness.
The ocean strong and passionate and moody framed the whole experience,
It’s temperament full and rich and altogether knowing.
The road by the ocean had much to teach me
And it led me right to her.
At the optimal moment of intrigue…
We break below the surface entering the depths of the deep radiant blue.
It isn’t complicated to appreciate how life turns and twists and becomes what it is meant to be when we accept the beauty, fullness and power of the moment in which we are in. The ocean demanded a change … who was I to fight it and seriously the road by the ocean made sure I wouldn’t be blinded to life’s simple pleasures.
