This is one of my favorite photos taken. You can barely see me, but I’m in there. I was in the Mayan Riviera, taking a walk along the beach first thing in the morning and this was the view. In my eyes, you can’t get much more perfect than that. Whenever I come across this photo, it instantly calms me and takes me back to when I could actually hear the ocean waves crashing. Serenity.
It has been a long time coming but it is finally finished. Although I have had this property and view for over 7 years now, I was never taking advantage of it. I am so blessed to be surrounded by nature, forest, animals and birds- a true oasis.
I was recently in Las Vegas and although it is amazing to see, I couldn’t wait to be away from the lights and the crowds. As I sit here, early morning, drinking my coffee, I am listening to the remarkable sounds of nature. There must be 30 types of birds singing their hearts out for all to hear. The problem is, many of us get too caught up in life to notice. Nature gives to us constantly and unconditionally and we don’t take the time to appreciate what we have.
I am making myself a promise to start spending time out here, in silence....no phones, no tv, just the sounds of nature and complete peace.
