A Seat in the Rocks.

Today was a good day. I had a lovely swim in my favourite ocean pool, started running on the beach again and doing a proper workout. It’s been at least four years since I have done this and it was awesome. I was surprised at how far I was able to run, and swim, despite feeling so unfit. It was as though I had come back home. I’m looking forward to a solid summer of reading academic papers, working out and just giving time to my mind, body and soul. It was just a beautiful day all up. After my workout, I got in a few solid hours of academic reading, caught up with some old friends who happened to be on the beach today also, read my bible and spent some time in prayer feeling close to God, had a lovely lunch and shot some photos with my big camera.

I found a “seat” carved into a set of rocks that I have never seen before in all the millions of times I have been on this beach. It was lovely, felt like a special seat in the rocks just for me to sit and spend time trying to make sense of the beauty all around me, and the things I was reading and learning about in neuroscience, my own unprocessed emotion amidst all of this. Not that I solved the world’s or even my own problems on that seat, but it did feel almost like a beautiful room that had been prepared for me, as though God had put a seat there in the rocks so that when I came I would be comfortable. I did feel very comfortable today.
