The Feel Good Idea Of The Day: Clear Water

Not only the thirsty seek the water, the water as well seeks the thirsty.
— Rumi

A white feather floats atop the clear ocean water. Olympic Peninsula, August 2014.

Walking on the beach. I look at the water and see rocks of many colors.

Seaweed and mesmerizing shadows on the sand, water lapping.

The clarity of water stills me. I see an opportunity to be still and clear.

Let the clarity reflect onto me, please let me mirror this stillness, this grace.

I close my eyes, and sense the softness that lives right under my skin.

Surprisingly, a brief moment of peace and clarity impacts me.

An audible exhale and my face turns up, toward the sun.
