Honu Wisdom Card # 20) Spend time at the beach.
Spend time at the beach. Walk the shoreline. Feel the sand in your toes. Look to the horizon and see the colors of the sky, the sun, the clouds, the birds flying in formation, the boats and the peer. Feel the temperature of the water as the waves touch your feet. Hear the sounds of the waves, the birds and the people. Find some special seashells, smooth rocks or sea glass. Take a deep breath and soak in the smell of the fresh salt water air. Feel the breeze on your face. See a kite on the shoreline. See the dogs running and splashing in the water, meeting and greeting new friends to play and interact with. Hear them bark at their owners to throw the ball. Watch them run as fast as they can to fetch and retrieve; their only purpose on that day. Find peace with these gifts. Be centered and grateful that we are here on this day enjoying the beauty that surrounds us from head to toe. Wherever we are, our gifts are plenty. Be still, be quiet. Spend time at the beach.
