A ferry Sky; Meditations on Black Friday

 

Excuse me while I kiss the sky . . .

Purple Haze, Jimi Hendrix

 

Ferry trip from the mainland

 

Georgia Strait

Only that day dawns to which we are awake.

Henry David Thoreau

 

Dawn on Georgia Strait

 

thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes.

e. e. cummings

Georgia Strait, looking east towards the Coast Range Mountains

 

We are like a bunch of drunken sailors at the last end of a long stupid party, falling over the furniture in the twilight of dawn.

Seeds of Destruction – Thomas Merton

Heading home

 

There is one spectacle grander than the sea, that is the sky; there is one spectacle grander than the sky, that is the interior of the soul.

Victor Hugo

Georgia Strait

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Rabindranath Tagore

 

Georgia Strait and coast of Vancouver Island

In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then believe them to be true . . .

The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart.

Buddha

Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, (hu)man(s) will have discovered fire.

Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

 

A new day dawns

This post was inspired by the Weekly Travel Theme – Sky  –  from Where’s My Backpack.

Help the world with the problems of over consumption – reduce, re-use and recycle.  Maybe even consider BUY NOTHING DAY.  This December, let’s give of ourselves.

    • Thanks Nancy – I have a special recyled suprise coming up, of incredible wild-life photography from a old friend of mine – brother Charles Brandt. I’ve spoken of him a couple times before.

      It’ll be a guest series – he’s an amazing person. A gift to my fellow bloggers, if that makes sense. And we don’t have to buy anything!

      Peace to you too, Nancy.

    • 🙂 yes – I live in a small town, and fro me it is rare to shop except for groceries and building supplies for my work.

      Overall, at christmas the urge to buy does come over me, maybe so I can fit into the giving part of christmas, but also it is my personal consumerism that I need to be more conscious of at this time of year.

      I hope you are keeping well, Tanya.

  1. a very beautiful tour over the sea and great December gifting message, Bruce. i imagine the ocean fragrance coming from your photos – lovely.

  2. Ah, de Chardin, that I can totally relate, Bruce. There is so much beauty when taking the ferry. One can be totally absorb with the grandeur of the sea and sky. Blessings.
