as an artsit who is continually painting it's important to replenish the source from which all that out pouring of creativity comes. for me, a daily walk has fit the bill for 30 years. it's a way to connect with nature while moving the body, delighting the senses and getting out of my head. even though my house is right on the ocean, we are a on a cliff too steep to climb down to the beach which means a 3 block walk to the long steps down. this makes it even better because i can take in all of the beautiful flowers in the neighbors yards.
there are also luscious fruits and cute dogs~
we get to descend a looong set of 220 stairs to get to the beach- so very poetic
|that's casey with our 2 dogs. he's my main man, my soul mate, my partner, my best friend, my rock|
ahhhhhh the ocean, the sand, the water, the sea life~
the water reminds me to be fluid and the salt air reminds me to breathe deep into my belly, exhaling away all tensions and worries.
i delight in the patterned details of the sea's creations~
this is georgie and he likes visiting friends along the way~
the long climb back up the staairs gets our heart rates up and we return fulfilled and soothed and nourished from the greater source~
i give thanks each day for the beauty surrounding, enveloping me in it's profound glory. i am puely a channel for the true artist which is our mother eARTh.
blessings to you for beauty in your life every day ~
