It was cold. It was beautiful. There was snow everywhere. The waves rushing in and crashing against the rocks reminded me of life. The water rushes in and some of it settles in the sand, forever changing its composition. Then, the rest returns back to sea, forever changing memory. That is life. People and events come and go. Some leave beautiful changes on our Soul. Others leave indelible scars that never truly heal. But most go unnoticed as we scurry through life. We need to live in the moment, mindful of every breath we take, every awesome energy we touch. I felt free. I was a part of nature, a part of the universe.
