On this Planet, at this Time, In this Moment

As i sit here typing my bones just ache. My muscles scream everytime i move anything and I think the most prominent thought in my mind is, " I am getting too old to do this." Hours of treading water and swimming in fast bursts is wearing on my body. LOL .. the other alternative is to sit on shore and watch from a distance and that is just not even in any vocabulary I know right now.

So i will continue as long as I can to swim among the dolphins. They came again today.

I always marvel at the joy they carry with them. Today i saw grown men crying with delight. I saw children wide-eyed with wonder and I felt the water move around me as my friends the dolphins began to play with me.

After awhile I looked down at the black screen on my camera and realized my battery was dead. sigh .. The dolphins didnt mind so i continued singing thru my snorkel ,rejoicing that I live on this planet, at this time, in this moment.

Reading the blogs I follow I see so much beauty not only in nature but in the words and actions of the human spirit. May we all continue to rejoice on this planet, at this time, in this moment.

I am an island gal....
