After the passing of each season I like to revisit some of my favorite experiences, such as the blurring of day into night. The golden center has a mesmerizing effect…pulling you in, into a peaceful lull.
I think Mac loved these moments as much as I did. He even slowed down enough (which is rare for him at the beach) to savor this easing of light.
And speaking of light, one day as I was reading this book at the beach, I realized that I forgot to bring a bookmark with me. And since I don’t like to bend the pages in order to keep my place, I looked around my immediate area for a piece of something to use as a bookmark. In seconds I spotted a small piece of debris sticking out of the sand, and as I plucked it out I saw that it was a piece of bark…shaped like a birdie! I was beyond delighted to find this amazing surprise. This felt like some sort of sign to me, but what exactly? I’m still not sure. So I decided to “bookmark” this moment for another time…hoping that perhaps a clue would later appear.
Soon after, while browsing some artsy shops in Kennebunkport (down the road from our vacation home) I saw the message below written on the walls of a studio. To me, this message came across loud and clear, so I decided to take it to heart by taking it easy. Looking back, I’m so glad that I listened.
And you, what signs have you come across recently…and did they leave a lasting impression?
