Son Darren and I dined out tonight, thus delaying my time frame to write something for my blog site!
However, looking out towards the Coral Sea from a most beautiful location North of Cairns, we watched the daylight fade to a beautiful tropical evening. Sea side palms gently swaying in the breeze. Sea calmly lapping on the shore, caressing clean white sand. Salty sea mist spraying lightly onto our faces. The smells of sea, sand and tropical blooms, drifting softly within the range of our senses. Refreshing thoughts crept calmly into my mind. Voice quiet. Spasms relaxing. Feelings peaceful. Concentration drifting.
My never ending battle with speech seemed far away. No need to concentrate on getting sound out through tightly closed vocal cords for indeed, silence is golden. I sat, pondering the gentle flow of spirit, life giving renewal of hope and the great strength of love. Within those precious moments I held within my heart all my loved ones, here in this life and those who have gone before me on their soul’s journey, that together we may all just rest a while and be – just be.
