Default Breathe, Ladies and Gents...BREATHE DEEPLY

I just spent an hour at The Monterey Bay Aquarium, and i sat in front of the Kelp Forest and just watched the Kelp, three stories high, gently sway to the left, and gently sway back to the right...slowly...back and forth...a silver cloud of sardines kept swirling around, moving up and down like a glinting pillar, then coming together and then unfolding like a shining silver flower...
I just watched, the movement of the kelp, and the fish was like the very breathing in and out of God, it was so CALMING.
And i thought of you guys here on PTO and wishing i could channel this scene of Peace to all of you who are struggling with what is going on in your lives...
I hope it helps someone to know you were thought of today.
xo!
Dana

Pics i took today at the Aquarium...

This part of Cali is usually pretty gray and very cool, so make sure you have a jacket or sweater...
