It is not the vastness

it is not the vastness of things
nor their tender delicacy
but the way everything sings together
one pulsating chord of light

Your inner self must have been fed with amazing energy during the vacation you had! The opportunities for such communion with nature, as evidenced by the photographs, seem extraordinary.

Thanks for sharing. :)

I can only imagine the meditative experience you had on your journey.

Very perceptive insight about the wholeness of all things. Taken separately, nothing makes senses. Taken together, the patterns reveal themselves in wonderful displays of light, as you have artfully expressed.

Very beautiful. The images, the words, and especially both together.

It's so nice to have you back!

Wow! Me neither. All teh starfishes in my life have been 'mud' or 'orange'. They are brilliant!

Those purple starfishes sure are part of that pulsating chord...

I have never ever seen such starfishes, thanks so much for "catching" and sharing!

Sky, I'm glad that comes across.

Mermaid, it surprised me how meditative paddling can become, or even sitting on the rocks. Spending a long enough time helps.

Gilbert, oh I had many! ;-)

Dale, it's very nice to be welcomed back like that. Thank you.

Brenda, aren't they incredible? I've watched movies of sea stars, sped up, and been amazed at how fluid and graceful they are. Pick one up, and it just seems stiff!

Zhoen and Lee, the purple sea stars is quite common in that area, along with orange. I've read that the purple may be slightly more common along the inland shores (where we were), however.

Lori, for me they are like the notes of a scale that makes up that chord.

Michelle, that's what I said! ;-)

Wow, that trip sure did you good. These last three very short ones are wonderful, and the photos too.
