Force of nature
Sometimes we forget the power of nature...
we are reminded always by the tragedies such as flooding, hurricanes, tornadoes, and other catastrophes...
but sometimes the forces of nature are also pure beauty.
The waves from last night until now have been enormous. The sun is shining brightly, but there must be something brewing in the sea.
The water is up to the steps that take you to street level in some places. The sound is so loud that it feels like I am sitting at the beach instead of in my apartment, on the 12th floor above it! This is my building, and these are some shells that I found there today. I felt like I wanted to take home a memory of the waves...the sound is always inside me and I hear it to sooth me...and the shells remind me of the mix of fragility and strength.
