|Flying to Belize|
One cannot collect all the beautiful shells on the beach.
One can collect only a few,
and they are more beautiful if they are few.
The weather here in the south has been unpredictable with more rain, clouds, thunder, lightning than usual. But each time I'd glide into the swimming pool, I would look up--eyes protected with UV sunglasses--into the cloud-filled sky to find the sun shining through, right over the pool. Smiling, I continued lapping. One afternoon there came a cloudburst, but no thunder and lightning. Swimming in the rain with my sunglasses protecting my eyes from the pounding rain felt like a delightful outdoor shower. My summer of tenacity voted me Esther Williams of Golden Hills. Like I always say, it's never too late! Sixty-four-year-old Diana Nyad can vouch for that! (she just completed swimming from Cuba to Florida!)
Summer is winding down, but I'm feeling invigorated as Autumn breezes slowly approach. I will replace swimming with long walks and SaSuBe dance classes.
A Tip to all of you out there in Lady Leaf Land: take care of your body, soul and spirit. You'll feel--and look--much better when you do.
How precious to me are your thoughts, O God!
How vast is the sum of them!
We're I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand.
I wish you smooth sailing through Fall and oceans of blessings!
