Desiring Permanence


Wow, I had a terrific day today! We went to the shore, where the sun was shining much warmer than we expected! The parking lot was full of hunky hunks changing into their wetsuits, as we were at the beach where the Mavericks surf. The waves were wild and powerful, the pelicans were diving, and the turnstones ran the beach.

After our walk, we went to the Pigeon Point Lighthouse and watched the Harbor Seals playing in the surf, pointing them out for tourists from Germany. Then on to lunch, where we tried deep=fried Brussels sprouts with our (also deep-fried) fish-n-chips.

Days like this always make me aware that I want my good experiences to stick around and become permanent. All my life, the good people, good jobs, and good days have come and gone, returning only when they transit my memory. My appreciation for wonderful days like this is always a little tinged with wistfulness, that never again will this day exist. Sigh!
