A Pile of Fish Bones and Lagoon Debris

I’m exhausted, and giving up on painting #18. I’m considering the possibility of rising early to do one more. I depart in the morning, with nothing but thoughts of gratitude for this experience.

Thanks always for reading.

    did you feel like a child on vacation? i’m so glad that you had a total immersion in nature.. it’s so very comforting, and with your interests in thoreau, you surely felt a stronger connection.

      Z, this time and place were perfection! Thank you for your nurturing comments, you were right. I did feel a total, affirming immersion. I should return a better man.

        Be careful; those retreats into isolation can be quite addictive. it’s hard for me to return to the fast lane. after about a week, my pulse rate has gone up from stress and i’m ready to bolt to the nearest slice of total immersion in nature..

        I’m waiting to see how my debriefing goes. This has certainly been a welcome change of pace. I prefer living this way.

        It’s serene and fits our natural rhythms, and we are more in tune with ourselves and our planet.

        ha.. i’ve a 15-year jump on the ‘less is more’ route.. i disconnected from telephones 15 years ago and from televisions longer ago than that. it’s not a lifestyle for most, but it definitely enhances finding one’s center and not getting caught up in that other world of materialism…

        I admire you profoundly. I didn’t need TV or computer or company out here, but I did fret over the difficulty of posting my work–and thought of you every time, your funny stories about trying to connect from your remote location (your dial-up modem?)!

        it’s a tiny usb modem that works great in a city but too far from the old tower to get good service. i spent last night in town so used the fast internet, the only easy time to upload images.

        This has been HORRIBLE, trying to upload from here. Sometimes 4-5 attempts (what is embarrassing are my duplicate, triplicate and quadruplicate posts, because my phone kept saying “attempt failed”, and then it published them all, making me look like a dimwit.

        exactly.. that happens when i send emails…

        i am usually unable to comment or see the images when the connection is slow…if the page doesn’t load entirely, it won’t allow interaction with the world.

        And you seem so patient with that. It drove me nuts this past week. Now, on the mainland, I have dependable service.
