Another happy sunrise walk this morning, leaving the condo at 6:15 …
On our walk back to the condo, we saw these big beauties…
After a fine lunch at the Lazy Flamingo Cafe,
we rode our bikes a few miles to the place where we rented them, and I was able to exchange mine for one with a much softer seat and smoother gear-shifting. Then, we glided away on our bikes for another few miles to a grocery store, where I made a few purchases and Cia did some price-checking to help with planning our future trips to Sanibel. (She is our all-purpose travel agent, and a super-competent one, for sure!)
Here’s a poem I wrote several years ago ..
LOOKING FOR LIMITS
He sometimes tries to find
the limits of things like love.
Can you love only so much
and then it finishes at a fence
or peters out like a small stream?
Is love like a savings account
that could quietly come to an end,
and then no more money or love?
He thinks the answer is no,
for each day he rides on a sea
that has no shore,
is borne along by breezes
that never began.
