a Photographic Journey by Meryl

Surfing

one step
then two
like man
on moon
surfing soon

Sometimes it feels like we are stuck in the sand, frozen in time.
We see where we want to go, hear it, can even smell it.
But we can’t move. We’re paralyzed by the thought
that we might make the wrong move. This
alligator reminds me that there is
no such thing. One step, the
slightest movement is
progress.

    What a find – the sand sculpture is so interesting! Great capture – and have to agree with you, every step closer no matter how small counts BIG TIME. I keep reminding myself that now more than ever ~ especially with the challenges that are literally preventing my steps!! ~ The slightest movement as you say brings us forward which is wonderful to realize. Sending Love ~ R xo

    • Yes, Robyn….not surprised that you can relate here…not only your beloved beach, but those actual steps you are having trouble with….:-(
      Interesting how “movement” applies on so many levels…emotional, physical and spiritual….that’s what’s so wonderful about language…happy you found some hope here…xoxomeryl
