Let The Power Carry You Through.
Fun in the sun, lazing on the beach after a refreshing swim in the Indian Ocean in December 2013. This is what living is all about. When I look at this photograph it inspires me to ensure that I make time to unwind like this again.
At the time I visited my son and his lovely family in Kwa Zulu Natal. Quality time was spent with them and I also swam with my granddaughter in the surf. She really enjoyed that. If I focus on this picture and close my eyes I can still imagine the setting, the sound of the waves, the smell of the salt water and the warm sea sand under my towel.
What I love about swimming in the ocean is the immense power of the currents and the waves. Most of the time you can only go with the flow because the forces are so great. When you body-surf and the wave crashes on you you realise how powerless you really are. That's when you learn to work with these forces to get the most out of the experience.
Isn't life like that sometimes? When you have done everything in your power to make something happen and you just don't seem to pull it off. That's when I just let go and watch what unfolds in my life and I let the power (the forces of life) carry me through.
