We always get what we need...and in perfect timing

Though I have been in British Columbia for almost a year now (wow!), I am still in deep amazement of the beautiful landscapes here.  I think this may last forever!.

The other day I was feeling drawn to be by water so my friend Darwin and I ventured to Comox Lake.  My original intention in going to the lake was to receive some divine inspiration for a particular writing task.  With journal and pen in hand, I was ready to write!  Our timing was perfect.  We soaked up the last bit of sun, admired it setting behind the mountains, sang a couple songs, and watched two sweet little ducks playing in the water together.  I felt completely connected to the elements: earth (trees and sand), air (wind), fire (sun) and water (lake).  Unfortunately, I did not directly receive the divine inspiration for my writing task, and my pen never met the paper that evening.  However, I left with a clear and peaceful mind; it was a great place to start.  It is like Mick Jagger says, "You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you just might find, you get what you need."  Indeed, our silly, fun, and peaceful journey to the lake was exactly what my soul needed that evening. The writing task got completed a couple days later.  Again, it was all in perfect timing.  :o)

  1. B.C. really is a paradise. I have lived here my whole life and so often take it for granted and look past it. I am so grateful when someone reminds me to look at it again. So, thank you.
