Evening Walk :: One Hundred Ninety Four

Back to the beach... for a walk, for the air, and waves. To build another castle, and sing songs.

It goes too fast... this family time, when we are all together. It's not over, I know. But changes are here, new schedules and plans, growing, moving forward in different directions. Would I be better prepared, more readily accepting, if I weren't so very happy with how our life has been, what we have? I was sadly reminded, too, in yesterday's news, that there are more ways to face change than growing up, new schools... there is tragic loss, and senseless violence. All of which made me feel both thankful for what we have, and like holding tighter, anxious. So, back to the beach, where we can make our time count in nature, with friends, laughing, and feeling the pleasure of our family life, now.

With Infinity More Monkeys, a picture a day.

So beautiful, and so directly at the heart of it all. I think that we really must hold onto the peace and love around us, to honor and express gratitude for the moments while they are here and especially in the face of so much sorrow in the world.
