It is a dark and velvety cold winter night here at the ocean. Humidity and clear night skies always offer a special kind of blanketing aspect to the cold I find. So, with the kettle on within from a warmed through heart, it is time to brew a little cuppa in thank you…
The unanticipated break of a needed item not to be found available for purchase anywhere on the coast necessitated an unplanned trip into Portland at an odd time yesterday. So it is that N and I were found to be cruising down the road looking back in the rearview mirror just in time to see the sunset as we traveled over the pacific coastal mountain range late on a chilly winter afternoon:
The image featured above is the resulting picture captured while sticking the head and hands hanging backward out the moonroof of the car last night. (Poked out just enough to get the shot and not enough to be frozen in place in the frigid winter whipping wind encountered at 60mph!)
Stunning, the sights that can be seen and the treasures that can be found, when we allow ourselves the pleasure of looking back down the roads we have just traveled from time to time.
2014 I find offers a similar stunning sight when seen in the rearview. It has been a rich and varied year for me. When I sit quietly now with a warm cup of tea and reflect back upon it, much of the true wealth that has been gained as the earth spun another full circle, has been gifted by those of you who read, write and engage with me here. Your shares this past year are so appreciated.
What powerful mirrors you are at reflecting back the beauty that we be!
Heart happy gratitude and much thanks (more than the mere words can really contain) are sent to each of you for this. Your hearts (in the form of words shared here that echo on as my nose moves around), have traveled with me these past quiet months. Each of you can often be found conversing quietly within me. This is precious to me.
May 2015 be found to be all the more beautiful as we each continue to build and travel on with the adventures of this next spin round. I raise a cuppa to the joy of future sharing on your little peeks back and in, and the stunning views I know I find in you.
