…Sunlight warms a grateful cat. The excitement builds around town. One can feel it while out and about. Vacation time is near. Festivals are building and about to begin. Graduation activities abound for many. Weddings are taking place. We begin to shift to a different mode.
Amid a flurry of pre-summer activity, I still managed to choose a leisurely drive home back down the coast from Long Beach on a recent day. The cobalt sky melted into the blue-green of the sea as pelicans, gulls and other sea birds swooped overhead. Scattered surfers plied the waves near shore. I was ever so grateful not to have taken the freeway route just for the speed of it. I would have missed this beautiful reminder.
We are so fortunate here for this moment of fleeting time. Certainly, the debacle along the Gulf Coast should remind us of this if nothing else does.
