3 January 2010
"Sometimes the days burst open like seedpods and we see thousands of futures, and it's so much that our throats swell and we can't do anything but turn away and forget that gleaming, all that possibility. Who could live into such brightness? Sometimes the days beat their wings slowly so we can take their measure, so we know how lucky we are that we are being given just one moment more."
From The Slippery Year: A Meditation on Happily Ever After, by Melanie Gideon
Photo taken this afternoon, Limantour Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore. It was sixty-five degrees. I walked in my tank top and watched kids playing in bathing suits, picnics, kites, and games of catch.
Happy New Year.
