Asilomar State Beach, Pacific Grove, Colifornia


The sun sparkles through raindrops, dripping from trees like cut diamonds with the sky a deep blue backdrop. The spectacle massages my mind. Look for something beautiful, I thought, to distract from the unavoidables and change the conversation. Something beautiful to occupy my mind and help me to the next moment, to allow something better to have a chance. Watch the clouds drift past the freshest of suns, where given and taken meet and dissolve. A respite to prove the art of distraction.
