A prayer for peace in God through the safe place of a tree
Yesterday I had just dropped of my daughter at the train station saw her off and decided that I would go to a nearby beach park. So I did and oh it was only 8:45 in the morning still a coolness to the air and there was a woman right down in the water photographing the Heron it was way cool so I just sat in my car and watched her and the birds, picked up my camera and took some shots and then read a bit of my book glancing up here and there.
Off to the side was this girl that that was walking in a care free kind of manor and her hands waving in the wind I thought as she was walking away from me that she must be listening to music. Then she steps up on the train tracks and I notice no shoes..... and as the wind blew her read pippilongdtocking type hair up I saw no headphones, grabbed my camera and took a few shots. She was talking and walking towards the corner as if a train were to come around she would be toast...just as I was wondering what to do she turned around and headed back.. still talking to herself she seems to get a violent tone to her voice and I am sensing metal illness at this point.
She steps down off the tracks and onto the grass and then graciously jumped into this tree and it was like very familiar to her, she sat back in it and her back settled Right down into the trunk and she relaxed. As i really wanted to photograph this I did not out of respect to her. I could hear more conversation and all of the sudden she stood up in the tree and just stood there.
I said a little prayer that she could find peace in God through the safe place she had found in that tree
I sat still glancing at my book, her and the photographer who was coming towards me and i popped my head out of the car and had a great conversation with the woman who had an amazing camera and is studying the interaction of the Blue Heron.
As we were talking the girl walked by and disappeared.
~Here are some pics I shot of the girl~
I also saw the following:
A man fill up a entire back pack of rocks and sand before dawning his helmet and getting back on his bike
Dragon flies dancing about
Two friend that has not seen each other for a very long time unite
Homeless woman looking so very peaceful
Couples walking their dogs and most had the little blue poop bags ( I was impressed)
