Come Walk With Me

As we leave the path that has taken us past the long grass and reeds of the dunes to the shoreline, we slowly step upon the golden sand. With each step the warm sand gently massages our tired feet, delivering them from the ache brought on by unforgiving shoes. Breathing deeply of the fresh clean air, our spirit is refreshed. The ocean mist lightly touches our skin, bathing us in its salty glory. Walking along the shore the warmth from the mid morning sun wraps itself around us, as if cradling us in its arms protecting us from harsh reality. We continue along not speaking just absorbing all the beauty that nature is offering. Off in the distance we can hear the faint cry of gulls as they glide along the crisp blue skies. We sense the harmony of nature as it pulls us into its fold. Nearing the waters edge the sand begins to cool, soothing our feet even more as the gentle rolling tide of the ocean dampens the ground before us. Soon we are mesmerized by the gentle swoosh, swoosh of the tide as we make our way to my favorite resting spot. Spreading a soft blanket upon the warm sand just beyond the reach of the surf we sit to relax in the mid morning warmth quietly watching the aqua blue waves build upon the ocean, gloriously sprouting white frothy tips on their crest. Lying back upon the blanket we gaze up at the bright blue sky just in time to see a fluffy white cloud slowly drift by, taking with it all our worries. A strong feeling of peace washes over us as we listen to the steady rhythm of the surf. Ever so gently we are lulled into a state of tranquility. Consciousness begins to drift as if upon the current of the sea, gently rocking until we drift into a peaceful rest.

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed that. But I do know the huge sigh I gave at the end of reading this piece made me realise how tense I was. Thanks for helping me relax x

Thanks Nita. I have never been to the ocean, but you made it seem so real. I felt some peace while reading your blog. Thank you

Thanks Nita! Relaxed refreshed and yearning for those glorious days enjoying my morning coffee in the fog that lifts off the lake. Not the ocean I know but your post captures the same feeling.

To All - Thank you all for stopping by and taking the time to let me know what you think. I am so glad I was able to share the peacefulness of nature with all of you. I will do my best to drop by each of your blogs.

To Michelle - Funny you should mention fog on the lake, I actually do have a guided imagery written about early morning fog on a lake. When I find just the right image for it I will post it.
