Beach Walk 506 – Wear only your soul

I wasn’t in the mood to talk today, so I created a “Beach Walk Moment” instead.

It is a type of meditation, and in today’s episode, features a poem I wrote about 10 years ago. Think of the sea talking to you.

  1. …ah, I’m a million miles away after watching this – thanks Roxanne! Oh, and Happy Columbus Day* too – I think he was a water guy as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    *I guess not everyone is a Happy Camper with this holiday considering the aftermath to Native Americans after the discovery of the new world. I wonder which perception or position is appropriate?

    Regards,
    Jonnie

  2. Thanks for the trip, Roxanne…it was just what I needed today. (And, once again, you speak volumes without “saying” a word!)

    Malama pono…

  3. Hello Rox, Jonnie,
    it’s a wonderful holiday . . . certainly, Columbus had his personality and leadership faults; but so do any influential movers and shakers today – not every good-intentioned project always becomes a win-win situation; some are completely tragic (Love Canal comes to mind). Of course, to assess an endeavor from so long ago with the standards we hold dear today simply isn’t entirely reasonable – to us and to them.

    So, much like politicians and leaders of today, we might dislike their personal day-to-day leadership style, but we can still admire them for their altruism, dedication, commitment, motivational skills, team-building, and problem-solving abilities.

    Although we now know that Columbus didn’t discover that the earth was round himself ( http://tinyurl.com/245wxm ), we can still admire him for his commitment to demonstrate and prove to the world that it is round. . . and his tenacity for actually accomplishing one of his life’s goals.
    * * * Joke alert! * * *
    Of course, you do know that the Chinese explored the west coast of North America before Columbus ever dreamed of setting sail. The Chinese landed, took a serious look around, decided that there probably wasn’t going to be much demand for laundry service in the New World, set sail for home and never spoke of it again. You can look it up – you won’t find any proof of the Chinese landing on the west coast of North America – which proves how serious the Chinese were about the “never spoke of it again” part. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Ba-doom-boom. . .

    Which brings me to my closing “triplet Haiku” about explorers . . .

    Big blue lonely sphere,
    Shining bright in sea of dark;
    Anything live there?

    Big blue oceans call,
    Galactic explorers muse;
    Paradise re-found?

    Big blue warm embrace,
    Soothes and cleanses the soul;
    Who would want to leave?

    Until that time. . . Earl J.

  4. Wonderful, Rox. You never cease to amaze me.

  5. Susan and my dog Lexie says:

    …and can you cook, too?! You are very talented, Rox. Thanks for the calming blue sea journey and sharing glimpses of your inner self. You are a true treasure.

  6. For the record, I try to avoid cooking whenever possible! Tonight, SCM made mushroom and tomato risotto. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. That was thoroughly beautiful.

    You have a gift for both grounding and lifting people all at once.

    Much love from sunny Brighton
