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.
