Tomales Bay

We are in Pt. Reyes staying on Tomales Bay.  I woke early, even before the milk trucks rumble by and went outside to listen to the tide slurp its way in.  As the light began to slip into the day, I saw a gull walking back and forth nibbling.  Now, two hours later, a duck floats by.  It is enough to watch water and sky.

I did begin Malala's book last night, I am Malala.  It is an eye-opener, and, in my opinion, a must-read.  It is not a fast-read, requires time to imagine her life and where she is from, time to put yourself there, and perhaps part of the giving time is that I am here, pulsed in a different rhythm, requiring a molt.  Layers open like feathers, and fall.

We went to Drake's Beach yesterday, because wave warnings were in force, but it was the calmest I've ever seen it.  It is a gentle time here, soft with peace, and each time I look up there is more water on approach.  The tide comes in; the tide goes out.  In each of us, a pitcher pours and fills.  Receive.  Release.
