Enter the moment of darkness. The darkness that appears when you are still clinging onto the last rays of light. Knowingness of light remains deep within your soul. You know the dark does not last forever. The light is still there, even when you cannot see it anymore. Sitting in that quiet place, the time between when the day-walkers slow down and the night-walkers begin to stir.

happy-valentines-day So I awoke this morning and decided to make cupcakes for my Valentine’s Day.  Not that I really need an excuse to make cupcakes, but it was an added incentive today.  Went for a walk down to the beach and out on the Pier.  There were lots of people out today.  I heard one couple complain that they couldn’t get into the restaurant on the Pier because they didn’t have a reservation.  I saw a bridal party, or at least the bride and bridesmaids on the docks.  The bride was getting photographed with an older man that looked like a fisherman…Not that he had on a Morton’s salt type outfit or anything but he looked like the classic  stereotypical  fisherman icon come to life.  He was holding the bride’s hand and congratulating her.  Further out on the dock I saw some young (teenage) boys walking and laughing.  One of them was sending out his fishing line…not into the water mind you but out onto the dock.  Yep that’s right, in the middle of the walking path of everyone on the dock.  Why would he be doing this you ask?   Well, on the end of his line was a dollar bill. He and his friends were quite amused by the whole thing.  After making my way out to the end of the pier, I heard some adults joking about it as well.  They had big smiles on their faces.  Seemed to make their day.   Asking each other if they each had tried to pick it up.

There were also dolphins.  A pod that seemed to be having a good time and must have found some fish to follow or something because they made a loop back in a way that I don’t normally see them do.

The vibe I saw today wasn’t one of super-duper  loviness, but a general good natured vibe.  The day was beautiful and it was reflected in the people I encountered.  Even those that couldn’t get into their chosen restaurant.  They simply moved on to another one.  Perhaps Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be solely about the person you are with….but a reflection of positive, good  natured   love that we can put out into the world.  

If you like the picture of the cupcake go to my kitchen page to see more.  Have a great day!

Today is a beautiful sunny day.  But alas, my sinuses are in revolt today.  I did manage to work on quite a bit from my list yesterday.  The act of accomplishment is not mine today.  Resolving not to let the way I feel get me down, here is a picture from one of my sunny day outings(not taken today but worth showing!)

I did manage to get some studying done today.  Other than that, I received the gentle reminder that  I can’t always plan things out.  Or should I say I can plan, but need to be able to go with the flow too 🙂

I have ventured out the last few days to places I have often thought of going.  I spent a day in Encinitas, CA with a friend and we went to Swami’s Beach. We were there at low tide and here is one of the tide pools.

Magic Moments

The cyclic aspects of life  always enthralled me.  The four seasons, birth and death, sunrises and sunsets offered moments to pause and reflect. So often those moments are missed in our busy lives. (more…)
