dancing sunset

"Have you ever seen
in your life
more wonderful
than the way the sun,
every evening,
relaxed and easy,
floats toward the horizon
and into the clouds or the hills
or the rumpled sea
and is gone..."
                  -Mary Oliver
We just had the most wonderful, magical evening over here and I really wanted to share it with you all. I still can't get over how close we live to the ocean;  we take full advantage of it! We picked up some deli sandwiches from Vons (yes, the grocery store!)... drove down to the beach and watched the sunset. Tara and Tim splashed around in the cold water, we danced on the sand and were in awe at the grandeur of nature; the sheer magnificence of it all.
*P.S. I have also been busy busy working away in my studio and will have some new prints available soon!
Have a great rest of the weekend.

Food for the soul.... and Mary Oliver always captures those precious moments doesn't she?!Your evening on the beach looks idyllic, Soraya.

mary oliver takes the ordinary, writes it down, and makes us feel rich for the experience. its so refreshing that you enjoy the perks of your community - i think many people just dream of being somewhere else and miss out on the wonders in their backyards.

Hi Soraya, Your photos of the beach look so beautiful and magical. You are lucky to live near the beach. It must be so relaxing and inspiring! I am really enjoying the Dr Estes talks. She is very insightful and interesting. I also listened to some free Sounds True interviews with Dr Estes that I downloaded from itunes. Thanks again for the recommendation!
