What exactly is love?
History inspires us with a lot of heroic acts have been done in the name of love, and on the flip side also wrings our heart with terrible tales also done in the name of love. I’m intrigued, what does love mean to you?
A firm decision to gaze with kindness at the reflection that gazes back at you through the mirror; the courage to let go and to gracefully face and merge with the dark recesses of your Self, that you might come out whole and complete in yourself?
A meeting of two pairs of eyes across a sea of eyes, a delicious bolt of electricity tingling down your spine, and instinctively knowing that yes, THIS is the one?
A union of hearts and a merging of lives, of intertwined destinies, a steady plod of little actions everyday for a lifetime?
To surround ourselves with kindred minds and spirits who help to fill and even out the foundations of a life well lived…
To me love means all these and more…
I wish you a beautiful love season, and I hope you had a beautiful Val weekend. Remember to show love to yourself, to care for and cultivate your mind, heart, soul and body; and to show love to others, especially by being of value to them.
We were blessed to catch the sunrise at Sakumono beach on Sunday morning. Dawn or dusk at the beach is a glorious affair of undulating color-kissed waves and sky. It’s a perfect time for regaining rhythm and perspective. At the mouth of the deep huge scavenger of an ocean one can’t help but feel quite puny. Dimunitive but in the best possible way, and a tremendous sense of connection with our Creator, with our ancestors who have come and gone, and with our future progeny, who will one day gaze upon these very same waters. So wonderful, isn’t it!
I love coming back to the ocean at the end of each week. It calms down my restless wander-lusting spirit like nothing else can.
M and I captured some shots, and I’m so thrilled to share some with you today. For that morning I was all about bohemian vibes with the lace top and dangling multicolored bead necklace and earrings, with an extra element of cool with thoes mirrored sunnies, ha. I also had the cutest ankara espadrilles which I love so much!!! Unfortunately didn’t capture those on camera because of course I went barefoot as soon as I got there…
Hope you enjoy these postcards, and hope you get inspired to go out and enjoy your own beautiful times at the beach!
Thank you so much for reading!
