it’s the perfect time of year for walking at the huntington gardens.
mostly i walk around in stunned silence. but as you can see i stop frequently to take photos and send marco polo (app) videos to my sisters.
i sometimes think the frequent stops are interfering in my ability to just be in the present moment. but if i leave my phone behind i can’t listen to music while i stroll. which lately is pieter de graaf (dew drops and prologue being 2 of my favorites) CLICK HERE if you want to listen to Dew Drops
oh the perils of the modern world and our devices.
how to find a balance…
to sink into the moments of being rapturously alive without being pulled back out again.
i struggle with it.
i had the deep pleasure of spending the last 2 weekends in carpinteria with my dears – joyce and sharron.
a friend of mine and i are enjoying our study of eckhart tolle talks and conversations via videos and podcasts. we enjoy comparing notes and having good laughs about the foibles of our big human egos and all the nonsense we and other homo sapiens get up to.
the sunsets over the last 2 weekends were cinematic.
on this past friday as i drove up the coast to meet sharron for sunset on the beach, i took this photo out of my car window.
oh that changing sky. it’s the best show on earth. maybe in all of the universe.
glossy wet sand.
you almost can’t absorb it all. but we try.
we plunked ourselves down on a driftwood tree trunk. perfectly placed for our comfort.
hope you’re well. content in your far-off galaxy. keep me posted. xo
