Beach Walk 27 – Enjoy the Rain

There were very dark heavy rains this morning – until Lexi and I decided to go to the beach anyway – when the skies cleared for us for 30 minutes.

About Today’s Show:

It was a good morning to linger in bed and finish reading Life of Pi. But as I actually like the rain, Lexi and I decided to go to the beach any way. We just left the camera at home. Curiously, the rain actually paused for us. I’ve noticed this effect before. If I am willing to go out and face that which appears to be “blocking” or otherwise discouraging me, I find that life changes. Perhaps in response, perhaps a “co-incidence.”

Coincidence. Another word I like. The popular connotation speaks to randomness, but I like the more literal expression: a co-incidence. It feels more intentional. I found this “official” definition at, “A sequence of events that although accidental seems to have been planned or arranged.”

I hope you enjoy the rich full sounds and scenery captured by the secret cameraman.

Note: On the iPod rejecting videos, it’s actually an iTunes thing. A recent iTunes software update started rejecting all videos that were not .m4v. Apple knows about it and said they are working on it. Hopefully they’ll have a fix out quickly. If you right-click on a video and choose “Convert selection for iPod” then it works fine.
