Ocean swells subside and lull us in quiet, hypnotic rhythms, as they rise and fall upon a rock strewn shore. Flickering light dances, as split pine warmth caresses our being in gentle brush strokes of scarlet and amber glow. Our gaze ascends, as we bare witness to the cosmic light behind silhouetted pines set on a precarious perch. Cares and worries lift from earthly bounds, and mark the path of drifting embers as they vanish into the moonlit sky. We absorb the moment, and feel blessed by the gifts of a Cardigan night.
