This is our Galatea Fountain again: the fountain is cooling and the sound of the water is delicious on a hot day. I hope it cools the eclipse hunters, but even more, I hope hatred and discrimination and anger and bigotry cool and slide away in healing and love.
Two steps forward and one step back: I hope we lurch towards peace.
We have a lot of drift wood and both kids and adults build structures on the beach. Eventually a high tide takes them down, but they are often wonderful. I am inside this one, enjoying the blue water and the light color sand.
