Oh, no, I am not including a recipe. Just the photograph, for the Ragtag Daily Prompt buttery. I do not have many buttery photographs. Sometimes the light is buttery, though, even when it is not yellow.
Some days this beach is mostly sand. Yesterday it is rocks and more rocks, pebbles, stones, sand, beautiful. We are having lots of cliff collapse and new rocks are washing down. I was walking on North Beach last week when I heard bits of cliff fall. I turn and look and a nice one foot by 8 inch boulder falls from the top and rolls towards me, very fast. I stumble backwards and trip over a big boulder in the sand. I don’t hit my head and get knocked out and I don’t get hit by the falling rock.
I start back a little and another section of cliff rains rock. The tide is fairly far out, so I walk near the water until I am back where there is no cliff. Scary. Sometimes large sections collapse all at once. Death occurs by blunt trauma rather than suffocation.
My emotions are like the beach. Some days clear and sun and sand. Other days LOTS of new rocks. Other days stormy and the tide is very high and pulling at the sand and clay cliffs.
I receive a valentine from my daughter. She says she loves me. She says she misses the beach and the water most of all.
I find agates and they are beautiful. Some are clear and some are not and new ones keep arriving.
Let the light shine through, in spite of the weather.
I am not sure that the photograph really fits the prompt, the Ragtag Daily Prompt: sleekit. But maybe a yelling rubber chicken is appropriate. I start my tree this year with a bare stick with a fork in it.
I add lights to my stick.
I add ornaments to my stick.
The cats promptly knock it over and break some.
I remove delicate ornaments and get out the plastic and soft ones.
I finally add four branches from my cedar.
This is my adult children’s fault. They told me not to get a live tree. I figured that a dead one is legit, right?
