The Dance

Take me to the places on the earth that teach you how to dance,
The places where you can risk letting the world break your heart.
And I will take you to the places
Where the earth beneath my feet
And the stars overhead
Make my heart whole again and again.
~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer

So I was at the beach all last week with my children who are all well into adulthood and can only be called children as defined by their relationship to me and I saw these pelicans having a blast.  They were so majestic, I could only call it a dance.

As I watched them, I realized that my children were conducting a similar dance in the same sea and the parallels between the two brought a smile to my face.

I'm kind of sad to see another Summer past.

I'm glad to see MY child wasn't doing any of those tricks on her Kayak! Wish we could have been with you.
