You may have to click on the image – I’m still trying to figure out linking stuff.  It’s a beautiful coastal shot of waves breaking on a gorgeous day.  You can almost hear the waves, smell the sea and feel the spray on your face. It’s freeing….beautiful in all its abandon. Rhythmic, as the waves come in and go out. The sea is amazing, mesmerizing. There  are still places where you can be overwhelmed,stunned by the beauty of the world. And this beauty has the capacity to take you our of your pain, discomfort, perhaps for a little while and restore you. Even though you are merely an observer, surrounding yourself with beautiful images is a wonderful thing. Going to a place of beauty is even better if you can – but if you can’t, imagination is a wonderful thing.

I try to use my imagination every day – it is restorative, restful, and it helps me recover.
