What We Love About Our Home
In the afternoon, when life seems to ease and provide time for reflection, we sit overlooking the water, a glass of wine in hand. Our view darts from side to side as we watch the Great Blue Heron, the Egret, Pelicans and countless Seabirds searching for dinner. All seeking the same reward, doing so in great harmony. The family of deer who reside on Weakfish Island walk/swim to Finisterre to dine on tender and cherished flowers, returning home some hours later. Porpoise swim nearby searching for dinner, making themselves known as they breath. A picture teeming with life.
As we enjoy the moment, the sun slowly sinks toward the horizon, turning clouds a soft pink shade across our view. This is the beginning of a portrait that appears before us each night. The scene is peaceful, a slow entry to evening.
Then, without warning, the portrait changes, turning into a scene of fire lighting the sky. As the moments pass, the scene becomes more intense. We watch in awe, wondering if it could become more brilliant and beautiful. Prodding our attention, it does.
As we sip our wine, we wonder if we could have a better portrait to view and enjoy. We relax in mock solace, knowing that tomorrow we will be able to witness the portrait again. We toast that all is well with the world.
