Reclaiming my Spot
Summer brings so many people here to enjoy everything the Cape has to offer, that it is nearly impossible to park at "my" favorite spot - the parking lot at the overlook in front of the Chatham Coast Guard Station Lighthouse. How thrilled I was on Sunday to find an open spot at sunset. Early Autumn brought a lovely sky and relative quiet. I thought about reclaiming on many levels as I enjoyed the view out over the water, and noticed how much more the beach has re-built itself this year. In what seems like a short time ago, this view was only of ocean, and a small bar of sand jutting down from the north, now it is a vast area of sand again, taking its place anew.
The struggle for a static existence is heard and seen all around me, yet this changing scene reminds me to go with change, savor it, and my ability to adapt as these sands -dramatically in severe storms, and over beautiful calm summers. Me, too, and, and my life is just what it should be at this very time.......
