There are times when natural beauty transforms a place into a transcendent experience. This photograph was made in one of those moments in which I could have stayed forever.
I was standing at the shore of a secluded bay. I let the majestic views speak to my soul, while being surrounded by the sound of waves rushing up the pebble beach. Each wave was taking a few stones with it as it receded, only to push them back a moment later. A tender staccato of nature gave the scene a spellbinding, unreal ambience.
A moment of boundless joy, with pure ocean air flowing through my body and eyes gazing upon the impossible, glorious shapes in the sea.
Change is eternal. Change is flowing.
Your world will not be the same tomorrow. The person you love will be different. You will be different. You breathe, you change.
Next time you inhale, open your eyes and choose what world you want to live in — right here and now, and in this very second. And the next second, and one after that. And tomorrow, and the day after. Embrace freedom.
There is happiness, and sometimes we weep. Then we choose. Embrace love.
I am sitting by the sea, silky smooth water gently touching the rocky shore. All my life is behind me. I am grateful for where it has led me so far. All my life is ahead of me. Like in the open sea, there are infinite paths I can take.
As pleasant as sitting at the shore is, I know I can’t stay here forever. I don’t know what will happen if I start walking; nobody ever does. I know I must go, as stagnation is unnatural. I know I don’t want to follow anyone else’s path if I don’t want to live someone else’s life. It’s time to trust that the sun will bless my path in its glorious, warm amber light.
My path leads onto the sea, and I know I will walk on water; I’m fiercely following my heart. May we all be blessed with our own paths to light and our true selves.
The vast expanse of the beach was quiet and still, with only a gentle breeze and a faint hum of the ocean in the distance.
I was waiting for the waves.
I waited so long I wondered whether the tide would be so low today the water would never come. And then I heard a whoosh. A wave, several hundred meters wide, was coming at a speed I did not expect. It was only a brief few seconds before the water came and rushed past me, blessing me with a spellbinding spectacle of nature. Suddenly I found myself standing in the middle of the sea. I chuckled, waited for the photograph to finish exposure, and went to the shore to change my shoes.
