Good Morning!

Jane had no words this morning, just rest, and my words were words of gratitude for this precious, sacred, holy life I live.  I have set intention to place my feet firmly on the mountain each day.  Yesterday I walked up the Dipsea Trail out of Muir Woods.  I met a couple there, a young German couple, who held out their undistinguished map to me for guidance.  They wanted to go to the "Big Lagoon" at Muir Beach.  I said this time of year, I would hardly call it a Big Lagoon, and I thought to myself that those words might be a little exuberant, at any time of year,  for the band of water that gathers there, but they were determined to see the Big Lagoon, so I directed them down the hill and to the beach.  I am amazed at these odd little maps handed out to tourists.  This one had no guiding point of Muir Woods, and there by the words Muir Beach, were the words Big Lagoon.  It was like Mill Valley and "The Redwood Tree."  It is odd to see one's one land through the eyes of others who come.  It allows me to see how I must diminish where I go in my haste to see what represents.  I would explain Muir Beach by the ocean, sand, and hills, more than the lagoon, but clearly, to someone, a birder perhaps, it is the claim to fame.  My children used to splash in that lagoon when they were little.  It was a safe place to play.

I am heading down to Half Moon Bay today to meet a friend and play.  The sun is shining and the drive will be unimaginably beautiful.  I live in grace.
