Light into dark

"Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it." -rumi

Transition from late afternoon into evening is as seamless as the ebb and flow of the tide. I forgot how loud the ocean is. Should I be surprised given its' vastness? I was remembering the picture in the Pahari Baba Room of someone sitting on a rock facing the ocean and it swirling all around. The ocean is an 'in your face" experience of being part of it all. The sound drowns out any distractions that might be heard, the repetitiveness of the waves mesmerizes, and the shear immensity humbles--the teachings of nature. (If you have never been to the ocean, try to put that on your 'to do' list in this lifetime.)
