I went fishing today.
Like the rest of working America, I look forward to Fridays with great enthusiasm. Though, it us not what you think. Most of the time, I am off. A respite from the work week. Todays was one such day abd I went fishing. This has always been something I have always had the best times. These times are spent with and adoring my husband in the highest possible way. I love going fishing with my Cal.
Today we caught quite a few keepers and we were both happy. These times when the fishing is good, life is perfect. I get to see a side of him only a handful have seen. He glows comically and I can only stand there in awe. He is at peace. His smile is genuine. His tone is even. He is happy.
And so am I.
I took a picture of my view today. It was breathtaking. I wanted to stand there and look at this until I was old and grey. I was at one with my surroundings. I think it was that moment…..at 9:03 in the morning that I fully understood what Cal means by being at peace. It was the closest thing I could get. Should the ground ever stop vibrating under my feet, I may understand bliss.
Its amazing….the simple things….that make you understand a higher level of being.
