Also from tonight. (With geese) Later, went back and sat on the beach for awhile. No one else was around. I hope S sometime takes my suggestion to meditate on the beach at night. I think he'd really like it. He's working really hard. I admire that. Whatever my minor quibbles may be with how he interacts with me (or doesn't), he's trying to better himself instead of just complaining. It was so refreshing to talk to M when he was here. We see the world the same way. Glad we're back in touch. I've met a few other people too. Like A, who I've finally gotten to talk to a bit after meetings. I think we were both delighted to meet one another, since again, we see the world the same way. I know everyone has their way. But I find being out in "nature" is the best. There's room to think. Tonight, it was so foggy I couldn't see most of the far shore. I love to sit and lean against the sandbank while I hear the waves washing against the shore. It's different every night. Last Thursday, I had the chance to sit out in the pasture at the barn for a couple of hours as the sun set and night arrived. The pasture horses came and "sat" with me after they were done eating. Life may not be perfect the way I think it should be, but I'm learning to trust that everything is as it is supposed to be. I'm so fortunate to have the bay and the ranch always available for respite from the crowds. It's truly a gift from the universe. I know that all things come to an end, but those, I hope they stick around awhile.
