Summer read: Musings on our wedding anniversary time at Bridgewater Bay…

Sunrise, Cape Bridgewater

There is something very precious about watching the mood of the Great Southern Ocean hour after hour, day after day. Feeling at one with it and the entire universe. No interference from other human vibrations, just Eric and I,  unison, and the land of fluidity.

There are wind generators on the Western horizon, in from Cape Bridgewater.

The four hour long movie epic was on at the Horsham Cinema. After seeing it, someone had said “Let’s go to the Dunes!” So the lot of us movie goers – Arapiles residents had packed our backpacks, poured in our cars at the midnight hour, floated to Discovery Bay, and trekked across the coastal dunes to the dawn of an silver ocean.

Sitting here, in front of the same ocean, I am re discovering the art of allowing, a reminder that too long in one place can stifle inspiration.

A world away from our  summer scorched land.

Time and Space,

Eternal, precarious.
