Sea's Bedtime Story

Bedtime Story
Photograph by: Karen Holmes

"There is a way that nature speaks, that land speaks.
Most of the time we are simply not patient enough,
quiet enough to pay attention to the story."
- Linda Hogan

When the sun sets over the ocean, the familiar rhythm is there – that ever constant high-low lullaby of tidal confirmation touching sandy edges to sing an evening song. Standing there facing west, toes to chilled damp sand, the salty-air is carried on an evening breeze announcing week’s finish… how lovely of God to get out the paints and brushes…

Wishing you a blessed week's end...

Like God I hope your brushes and paints are out as well!
HE blessed YOU with the same lullaby to gracefully carry his thoughts, creatively, to others. Love it.

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
