If I live to be 100 and look back on my life, one of my moments of wonder will be sitting alone on Kaikoura beach at 5.30am in the morning waiting for the sun to rise. I left the campsite in darkness with camera and crossed over the railway to find a place to sit on the sand and wait.
All was silent, except the rhythmic sound of the waves, entrancing and soothing, constant and re-assuring. I could feel the cool sand, and feel the gentle morning breeze, and internally I can still remember that feeling of wonder at being part of this amazing natural phenomenon that happens every morning.
Affirmation: “I am paying attention to the beauty of nature and its constancy no matter what is going on”
