GOTTA RUN NOW

fort myers beach

A quiet moment at Fort Myers Beach, Florida.

Gotta run now! Just look at that sentence. Everything is an imperative. That’s me everything is urgent. Never in the moment, always planning for the next big thing. Chasing my dreams literary and figuratively.

That’s what I miss about the beach. Moments of solitude. Listening to the hush of the ocean and the patter of my heart. Quiet moments with God.

I almost captured it the other day when I paused to look at a butterfly with my grandson. In awe we watched the Florida state butterfly—the Zebra Longwing. My grandson said that he had never seen one before. I agreed. But maybe it was there and we missed it in the busyness of our day. Oh well…on to the next big thing! Gotta run now!
