Today I am reposting a favorite post from February 1st of this year and joining others in linking to Seth Apter's Buried Treasures collaborative. Seth's idea is that "There are so many brilliant artists out there but so little time to explore all their work fully. This gives us all an opportunity to see highlights from posts we may have missed from so many of our favorite bloggers." Visit Seth at The Altered Page to explore the work of others.

The Pacific Ocean beckons, arms wide to embrace the totality of life,
a reminder that each day is unique, each moment a lifetime.
I still stop my car at the sight of a sunset as I did
a quarter of a century ago with
my son in his infant seat. "Look
at the sky," I would say and point to another
flawless horizon as we sat to watch the last
of the persimmon colored embers transform the sky,
then drive the three blocks home in the silence
reflected under clouds.
