Once in a millisecond, galaxies form hearts in the universe
Being a parent is serious business and moments like these are the surprises we thrive on. Spontaneity rules our lives as we shoot for predictability but rarely get it as our children end up getting sick often and need endless amounts of attention, at least, if you are doing your job right. And, as you can imagine, for the first five years until our toddlers reach school age, we are spending loads of time at the park.
Sand in the Sahara sifts like a sidewinder
Sitting on my floating vessel
As I step foot on the pancake battered sand, I sink deep into the powdery earth. Tiger tail shells scatter in the sand softly with their red-orange color, beaming brightly enough to compete with sunrise shells in Kauai. Their yellow ridges fan out, resembling a brilliant setting sunset. Each one having slightly different colors radiating from orange to fuchsia hues. My favorite shells have a spray effect with powdery rusty red paintbrush outlining the ridges of the Tiger tails.
When you wake up each day, do you begin your morning with pressure to accomplish items on your To Do List? Or, do you wake up and look outside at the rising sun, or moody clouds and marvel at nature, and the gift of life? Of course, we all have things to do for survival and thriving in life, but once again, ask yourself, am I pressured out of fear of failure to accomplish my tasks, or am I excited to be productive and accomplish colorful, productive activities that may be interesting experiences?
