Turquoise greets the first days of our Summer at Pacific Grove.
The waters calm and cheerful. Children playing and chasing each other by the Beach. Their joyful laughter fills the air.
Adults staring at the Ocean in deep thoughts, quiet, meditating. Some have their eyes closed, smiling, peaceful, looking happily content.
The Youth, having fun and the best Summer of their lives. They are glowing and radiant like the Sun. No cares. No worries. Just enjoying the present with everything it has to offer. A mirror of what a great Summer should be.
Lovers kissing. Hearts melting. Bodies electrifying. Hot Summer sizzling feel good endorphins. Dreamy Lover’s Point, delirious and ecstatic.
Then pink follows, and stirs wilder early Summer. People call it the Pink Magic Carpet and it only blooms for several weeks at some parts of Pacific Grove. It then disappears the rest of the year. It’s a fleeting “see me now magic or never.”
Love is the nourishment of the pink blooms. The more the love, the more vast and beautiful are the Pink Magic Carpet flower blooms.
“Summer are colors that defies stereotypes, fear and ignorance. A visual feast that awakens even the most unfeeling of Souls.”
It’s generous pink blooms this year, so that means lots of love being passed and shared around. That is good news in a World hungry for love, kindness and compassion.
We rested on a soft carpet of Pink Blooms. The flowers and its leaves felt nice and ticklish.
We were in this spectacular day dream. Too unbelievable to be real, but there we were able to touch the flowers.
Wife and I were like too little lost Kids playing, goofing around like we were the only People in the Pink Magic Garden. Son probably embarrassed, sat on a bench far away from his Parents.
We soaked our feet in the cold Pacific Ocean waters that transition its colors from Turquoise to Emeralds to Sapphires. It was Beach Lover’s Treasure Heaven at the first part of Summer.
This is how we welcomed Summer in California Summer of 2022. I’m not sure sure if I can top its beauty and adventure End of Summer, but I would definitely try.
“Okay, Summer, I made my wish. Please, please, please make it come true.”
I would like to believe I am a better, nicer person every Summer.
I would like to believe people can change and be better every Summer, every Season, every precious opportunity that opens up.
It is not foolish to hope and pray that Time and Summer can have an outcome that brings everyone back together happy and at peace with one another. It’s not childish. Anything is possible with Summer.
