Meandering with camera…
to live in this world
you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go
― Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems, Vol. 1
Oh. The letting go…. 🙂
Beautiful waves, my friend.
We’ll have to talk about that ‘letting go’ someday…
Your quotes are always so special -thanks.
I’m glad you like them. They are so much fun to stumble upon! 😀
Beautiful, indeed, Gunta…and well-chosen words…again.
Seems as though the water and the beach and the waves offer quite a few lessons if you’re paying attention.
Yes…if we will but watch and listen. Thank you, friend.
Ah………the beach again. 🙂 Beautiful captures of those powerful waves, Gunta. The Mary Oliver quote is so profound. I will ponder over it.
My wonderful beach that I neglected this past summer. It’s great to have the storms returning. Much of Mary Oliver’s writing is profound and thought provoking. It’s definitely worth pondering.
Such a beautiful beach Gunta!
It certainly is.
Everything looks right in your world. The seal-like driftwood is great.
Things have definitely improved since this past summer! 🙂
Beautiful photos, Gunta, as always. We were in clouds and drizzle all day over in the Cascade foothills. Just finished Mary Oliver’s “Long Life”. Thanks for quoting her now and then – I discovered another author I enjoy!
My pleasure. There is so much that resonates in Mary Oliver’s poetry for me.
I too love that last image Gunta. I can almost smell the sea air.
Perhaps someday you’ll see the real thing. 🙂
The driftwood ‘seal’ resting on the sand is great, perfect pose you’ve captured!
Is it a fir seal?
Yep, probably named Douglas… 😀
Beautiful layers of blue. That last image especially grabbed me!
I keep going back to that same beach because it’s closest and it’s so beautiful.
You’re getting more blue sky than we are
It’s been patches and swaths off and on out here.
