I cant get away from the light, from the vibrance of life.
Baby owl at the Tallahassee Wildlife Reserve. He’ll grow quickly, much faster than humans. He will also pass sooner.

I sat in my kitchen gathering some materials to read in my backyard and I reminded myself to pray. Yea…I’m still in that stage. I believe in God. I believe in the universe. I believe in energy. But it’s still not a natural reaction for me to put my hands together and pray. I prayed aloud this time. I gave thanks to my blessings, sent my blessings to others, and asked the Lord to enter where he already abided.
I took a deep breath in and smiled. I always feel resilient after prayer.
I looked outside and I noticed this fallen flower in the water. I play with this particular flower often, whenever I went for a swim- gliding it through the water, admiring it’s gracefulness. I remember last week, floating weightlessly, closing my eyes and meditating. This flower was my only companion. It shocked me that it was still carrying on, gently, as if it didn’t rain.
The weather began to shift from a gentle overcast to a bright, harsh sunlight as it often does in South Florida. The water began to sparkle- light reacting naturally, creating a beautiful image to sight. I gasped for air because I knew that God, the Universe, Allah, the Higher Power-whatever you want to call it, whoever you want to call it- was with me.
I grabbed my camera and spent some time over the water, until the clouds moved over the sun.
