A Moment of Awe

The heat was intense and the water perfectly cool. English, German, French chatter mingled together incomprehensible in the background. The sun glistened on the water, ever so often a breeze awoke the leaves and a collective sigh embraced the shore.

A moment of awe, so important to find in life and as often as possible.

The coolness of the water caressed my legs, my arms, my stomach. I swim back to where I can comfortably crouch, kneeling on the sand bed, silently crunching water born acorns lying underneath. I move my arms left and right changing position as my ballet teacher showed me. I try to move with flow. I stop trying and just let my body move. I take a deep meditative breathe and another and another.
