on the road again…

took a little roadtrip and hung out with blueberries

in a field overflowing with dragonflies dressed for a masquerade!

grasshoppers were lined up like young men at a ball, watching, waiting in funny clusters

while bees literally wove circles around me telling jokes all the while

the ocean and i shared an afternoon

we melted into one another with unabashed intimacy and i couldn’t stop singing

couldn’t help but dance

as i was packing up 2 egrets stood at the edge of my space, only feet away

they watched my leaving openly as children do

curious and fully absorbed for seconds that lasted hours

i got lost in the stories all the miles whispered

and sweetly found myself rejoicing in knowing that with everything going on in the world

that breaks hearts, spirits, and at times our capacity to trust or truly connect at all

life can’t help but overflow beauty and tremendous Love at every turn…

to kiss us softly in places we didn’t know were there

and set us wide-open back on our refreshed feet

    1. Thank You, Peter!!! I’m so happy You enjoyed it! And YES!!! The egrets blew my mind! We have lots of egrets where I live but You mostly see them all around the marshes. I’ve never, ever seen them at the ocean’s edge of a beach with people all about. And a pair of them! They were literally about 10 feet away from me and even when I took my tent down and was shaking it off to fold up, they didn’t budge. Just stood there looking at me. It was as if I was the odd sight! 🤣 (I likely was with my crazy ocean hair all in knots!!!! 🤣) Cheers and hugs! 🤗❤️😊
