Red River Medicine

No matter what’s going on, no matter what cares there may be…

There’s nothing like smelling the sea air at Red River beach.

It helps me clear my head…

See things from a different perspective…

The smell of the air and the water, seeing everyone going about their day…

Helps me to know that all is well, all is well.

All is truly well.

In Search of Peace

It has been a time of upheaval both in the weather patterns here on the Cape, and in my own life as well.

Last evening, after the recent storms within and without, I went to the shore in search of peace.

And there, as the sun was setting, I found the inner calm  that I lacked in reflective pools…

Among the shells…

And along the jetties where others, too, seemed to be finding their own moments of reflection and pause.

I was pleased to see that in my recent absence the marsh had been slowly pulling on its luminous autumn garb, one blade of golden grass at a time.

Tomorrow will come soon enough, and I’ll dig in and face it all again, I told myself.

But for right now, let there be peace…

Storm Comin’

There’s a storm comin’ to the Cape this morning.

I could feel the wind starting to blow from the moment I got out of the car.

I love it when a storm’s not far away.

There’s an intensity in the sea as the waves gain momentum, churning up sand, shell and stone.

A haze fills the air, making everything look almost dream-like. Softer…

And the birds always know when the weather is turning, too, as they grab a bite to eat and head for home.

Even the flowers in the marsh seem expectant, opening wide for those warm drops of rain…

And I love how the beach gets so quiet. A delicious stillness, not a soul in sight.

This is my ole’ Cape Cod, my home.

An ever-changing, intense world that heal can the soul.
