A Living Canvas

[Click to enlarge photos]

We recently spent some time at Panama City Beach with Chelsy’s family, thankfully tucked away from all the party goers and drunken teenage debauchery, and I caught this beauty of a sunset one evening. I can’t really add any words to supplement these pictures; I think they pretty much say everything.

It was lovely sleeping out beneath the stars and just feeling like a part of this marvelous living canvas.

If there’s one thing about Florida I will miss when we leave, it is moments like this. Nothing separating the water and the sky, flat horizon for miles in every direction, and every color represented in full vivid glory here.

This brought a tear to my eye, so I wanted to share that moment with you.

Wherever you are tonight, I hope your sunset is breathtaking.

And I love you.

  1. I love the sunset photos, but love the idea of sleeping out under the stars even more. That always makes me feel very tiny at first, but then sometimes my borders melt and I feel at one with everything.

    Love and nature’s awesomeness free us from our selves.

    • Eileen, I couldn’t have described the experience more perfectly. It was at once overwhelming and idyllic, humbling to lay in the presence of a mighty ocean, and to sleep beneath an unfathomable blanket of darkness, of voidness, of distant light and life; if there’s one thing my experiences have taught me, it is that we are all connected, down to the last atom. You, me, and moon came from the same stuff, and physics would tell us we are all still touching, still linked, in some cosmos way. Thank you for stopping by. Shine on, dear.

  2. Nothing beats a great photograph of a beautiful scene…except for the words of a gifted writer. I’m so glad you happened upon my humble little blog so that I could experience yours. Thank you for sharing your gifts and hard work. Kelly from Faithacre Studio
