Gifts from the beach. The first photo is a quarter of a sand dollar left by someone on a fence post leading up from the beach. To see the detail inside the dollar in macro takes my breath away; such intricate weaving created by the hands of the sea. How is this possible I wonder, this beauty, created by a universe beyond our knowing.
The second photo is of a sand dollar on the beach, cracked open by the waves, I think. I could spend days and days looking for these treasures. And meditating on the gifts that we are so freely given.
