spirit wind

Spirit i

For last week’s Discover Challenge Ben asked us to show “something that stands out from the everyday.” This second submission is to share one of those rare moments to be savoured both visually and aurally. Last week on our favourite walk along the Admiralty Trail in the Pacific Spirit Regional Park the sun was illuminating the trees swaying in the warm afternoon wind creating a symphony of  light and sound.

This week is our daughter and son-in-law’s second wedding anniversary and our forty second. A time to celebrate and be thankful, but this year I cannot help but think of the families and friends so callously murdered and injured at their own wedding celebrations last week in Gaziantep, near the Syrian border in Turkey, and to whom I dedicate today’s post. There are no words that can begin to understand their sorrow and pain.  Not being religious I will let the wind in the trees of the Pacific Spirit Park be my prayer.

  1. Lots of celebrations for you! Happy 42nd! And what a beautiful post. There is so much sadness in the world these days. I also felt connected to all things spiritual when I listened to the winds through the redwoods. I’m smiling now remembering.
