Last week I had a session in Tampa and found myself taking the Courtney Campbell home. As I don't often have a quiet car, I relished the silence and enjoyed the view of the Bay around me as I drove, smiling and just soaking up the sunshine.
It was a gorgeous day. The water was almost perfectly still and so very blue, like a mirror of the sky. There is a narrow road that runs alongside the causeway, right at the water's edge. I'd never paid much attention to it before, but today I desperately looked for an opening in the guard rails so I could get closer to the water and stop to take it in.
What a blessing it is to be this close to such a beautiful, natural source of water. I feel so peaceful near it. The ocean, whether at the beach or in the bay, calms my busy mind and anxious heart the way nothing else can.
