Encouraged to be quiet too...



The path of light, 
moon over water, 
wind visible in all that it moves, 
the dark trees,
the ocean swells
one lone boat fishing its own  small circle of yellow light...
and me waking in the early quiet 
watching like a cat at the window.

I enjoyed some quiet on the Pacific Ocean recently. Wish I could have popped down to your beautiful area for a cup of tea with you.

Fondly,
