Last week was one that full of many emotions which ranged from all over the spectrum due to the two tests I had to determine where the cancer is thus far. I did get some news on Friday but won’t have everything until Wednesday of this week so I am waiting until then before announcing what the results are.
After having been sick as a dog for the past two weeks on top of what went on this past week I thought it was best to get out today so I decided to take a long drive and ended up at York Beach. I knew I needed the healing powers of the ocean but I wasn’t sure just where I would end up. I ended up exactly where I needed to be. It was a beautiful day on the water and the salty air and cool breezes were oh so welcoming. They helped clear some of the static fog from my head, aided in mending my body and loosened up some of the tightness in my heart. For the first time in a long time I felt relaxed and at peace. It was heavenly.
I happened upon some surfers who were catching some amazing waves.. evidentially from the latest hurricane known as Igor that will be coming off shore. They were breathtaking to watch.. these men and women who catch those waves. I must have been there close to an hour watching them in their glory. I felt like I’ve been catching waves myself.. although not like these ones however still very similar as you’re still trying to get on top of them and ride them out and although you know that at any moment you will, and do at times get pulled under. However, you always get back up to ride and catch another one. I realize now why I was so mesmerized by them.. they are the metaphor for what life has been like for me these past six months.. I know that over the next month I will be keeping a watch on when the big waves are coming and go on down again to York beach to watch those surfers do their thing again while I do mine.
