The turtles are nesting, happens every year at this time. We see their heads pop up like this as we're walking the beach early in the morning. They're waiting for the sun to go down to come ashore. We put the dogs in front of some tracks to show you how big these guys are! We keep the dogs on-leash and we're very careful to not let them go anywhere near the nest ... just say-in :)
This is cool ... this boat washed up the other day. It's home-made most likely from Cuban or Haitian refugees. We've seen several of these "escape" boats on our walks over the years. We can't imagine going across the Gulfstream in one of these tiny ... pieced together boats!!
The only real failure is the failure to try, and the measure of success is how we cope with disappointments, as we always must.
We came here, and we tried, all of us in our own different ways. Can we be blamed for feeling that we are too old to change, too scared of disappointment to start it all again?
We get up in the morning and we do our best. But it's also true that the person who risks nothing, does nothing, has nothing.
All we know about the future is that it will be different; but perhaps what we fear is that it will be the same.
So we must celebrate the changes because as someone once said "everything will be alright in the end and if its not alright then trust me its not yet the end." - The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel
Yesterday we met the artist, Samual Ruder at the art show in Vero on the water. I loved his art but this one spoke to me. It's called "Release". Mr. Ruder explained it's about how we must release all things in our life every day. This is of course close to my heart and Taoist belief but this artists interpretation ls so wonderful, very powerful. Here the fisherman is releasing his catch, his most prized possetion.
