My daughter spends her days off from work exploring the Oregon coast. Today’s image is one she took near Cape Meares. I took the liberty of putting some mystical touches on it using Pixlr (which by now should be obvious that I am having fun using).
She told me that this place, among many along the coast, gives her peace and a respite from this crazy world we find ourselves in these days. We both hope you enjoy this image and that it gives you a feeling of peace, too. Namaste’
A famous rock … no, not Alcatraz. That’s called the Rock, too, but this one is much more beautiful. It’s called Haystack, found not far out to sea from Pacific City.
The little girl gazing at it really gave me pause. I found myself looking at her and pretending to be my younger self. My younger self would be thinking how huge it is. My older self is thinking how grateful I am to be alive to see this wonder of nature.
This is my daughter and my dog, Daisy, running on the beach at Pacific City, Oregon. It was the first time Daisy had ever experienced the ocean. She didn’t know quite what to make of it but soon adapted to running freely. It was amazing to watch. But what was even more amazing that I noticed when I uploaded this image is the look on Michele’s face. Free to just “be.”
The ocean has a way of calling to us, beckoning us to give our cares and worries over to it. I did … and I plan to go there often to just “be.” Namaste’
