The wind was gusting 15-25 mph this morning making it challenging to hold still and the ocean was churning with intensity. The wind gave me an opportunity to root into the ground like a redwood. Low tide gave Mother nature the opportunity to create a few of her masterful paintings in the sand. 

Last night I dreamt a cormorant was the messenger for today, and while I was snapping photos of the sun one flew over my head. Ah, I love feeling connected. 

Cormorants are versatile birds who can fly and are also great swimmers. They can dive deep to catch a snack. 
They bring the message of diving deep into our emotions, reminding us to honor our emotions. They also let us know it is time to overcome obstacles and see the many possibilities we have before us. 

Wishing you a day of beautiful reflections.
