PHOTO - A Sanibel Beach Meditation

Approach the shoreline differently. Ask it to reveal itself. Dazzling pinpoints of reflected sunlight squirm across the undulating surf, enhancing the breaking wave sea foam whites and darkening everything else. Lay down on the sand, close your eyes and become a part of the island. Gulf breezes. The vocabulary of waves meeting the coast. The joyful cacophony of children finally able to burn youthful energy by dousing themselves in salty water. Coconut suntan lotion. Ocean decay. The wind-borne fragrance of flowers in bloom. Relentless sun warming exposed skin. This is my meditation and, for now, nothing else matters.
