At the Beach on Christmas Eve

On Christmas Eve love is clothed with visible vestments, with gifts and written words, with holly-wreaths and flowers and candles. The love that through the year is silenced by ‘busy-ness” is expressed in terms of tangible beauty. Christmas Eve is the Ceremonial of Gifts, of gifts that are given to explain something which the heart cannot say.
Ceremonials of Common Days

 

Happy Christmas Eve from my part of the world where we tended to the Ceremonial of the Christmas Eve Beach Walk, when this year a stunning display of cloud angels reminded us of the magic of the season. And we shared a beach connection with the often illusive, Osprey. Both Gifts that “explain something which the heart cannot say.”

Merry Christmas to All!

One Angel fully formed, one forming and one about to form.

Can you spot the Osprey in the middle of the photo?

  1. What amazing clouds, with inspiring pictures to see within them. Here we have total cloud cover and constant rain for the last four days. So I do enjoy a virtual trip to the beach.

    All the best to you Laurie!
