|...is the name of this Qi Gong pose.|
Standing at the shore as the sun slips towards the horizon and waves lick at my toes evokes within a sense of peace.
|Immersed in the power of sea and sky, I had no idea that my good friend Connie was taking my pic. Thank you Connie!|
We visited the Botanical Gardens, shopped, ate the freshest seafood you can imagine and swam in the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico. I saw a small pod of dolphins one morning as I was sitting in the sand on my beach towel.
I jumped up in excitement and for a better view. Fins surfaced and dove, surfaced and dove, rhythmic in nature, perfect in synchronicity. I watched in fascination and willed them closer to shore.
Well, it certainly wasn't me; must have been something (food?) that drew them closer. A little more, a little more, and in a flash I was in the water, swimming out to the sandbar where I could stand up and watch. I was hoping I'd end up in their midst. These playful creatures only live for joy, so it seems.
They came close - about 10 feet I think. They did not circle around me as I'd hoped, but glided away towards a group of about 12 swimmers who were at the far end of the sandbar, shouting and pointing.
I have lots to tell when I get home.
Happy Thanksgiving to my American neighbours.
Hope wherever you are in your part of the world, it's not too cold and wet; November can be a damp month.
