Change

For nothing is fixed, 
forever and forever and forever, 
it is not fixed; the earth is always shifting, 
the light is always changing, 
the sea does not cease to grind down rock. 


Generations do not cease to be born, and 
we are responsible to them 
because we are the only witnesses they have. 
The sea rises, the light fails, 
lovers cling to each other, 
and children cling to us.


 The moment we cease to hold each other, 
the sea engulfs us and the light goes out.
- James Baldwin

The grass is such an inviting place to lay and rest for a moment. I imagine myself there, the mist from the waves washing over me.

There is something wonderful about the relentlessness of change, Meri, however much we might baulk at it. These photos are stunning and so evocative.

Wow Meri I thought the first photo was a painting. That is a perfect metaphor for change. The ocean, nature, beautiful.
