Meditating at Spanish Banks beach in Vancouver yesterday, I felt drawn to birth a small 🌀 spiral in the sand from beach stones and shells.
Afterwards I started to gather the stones up to take home.
An elderly couple walking by asked me why I was putting the stones in my bag. I replied that I was merely borrowing the stones so I could place them on my home altar to thank the Sea.
The elder man turned to me and said “We will do that too and take them home to Japan, as thanks for this day.” They then walked down to the water’s edge and started gathering stones.
A lovely moment, sharing with strangers.
