The silence is broken by the occasional breaking of turquoise tides as it seduces the white sands, the cloudless abyss of blue stretches far and the distant horizon seems limitless. I am alone in my oasis, its calming energy sooths my cluttered mind.
As I sit in the humid air birds sing of life, my feet warmed by the white sand under feet, my hair salty. I enjoy my solitude and my distance to the chaotic world beyond. Yet no matter how far I travel, or in a sense run away, North to South, I can never outrun my self.
Acceptance is a key step towards appreciation. Just when one thinks they are appreciating life and all its beauty flooding memories drown your emotions and strangle your being.
Acceptance can take some years as it lies dorment, burried by the rush of life, shots of coffee, hurried people in a daze of reality and bustling city traffic. Yet when it does hit you, your appreciation will be wordless, unable to be expressed in simple terms, it can only be felt.
