I love being in, on, or near water. I grew up in Milwaukee, WI about 2 miles west of Lake Michigan and I now live in the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood of Washington, DC. Swimming, boating, stand-up paddle boarding (my new obsession) – all of it, I love. Water is where I find refuge, peace, clarity. And with the weather warming up, I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying it. A lot.
After spending about 10 days in May near Lake Michigan, I developed a beautiful, flowy sequence that was inspired by the following words I jotted down after meditating on the beach:
expansion freedom horizon blue endless possibility hope reach light bend fold open collapse renew birth float depth glide rest sway push
Maybe you read these word a few more times. Maybe you read them slowly. Maybe now you close your eyes.
A few pics follow that were taken with my phone while out on the water in Chicago. Enjoy.
what is it about water that’s so soothing…

It supposedly has something to do with negative ions. The “big water feel goodiness” is also suppose to be present after rainfalls, around forest and up in the mountains. 🙂
