Off in the Distance…

The Pacific Ocean is roaring behind me with the Carmel Lagoon at my feet. Off in the distance I see a road I’ve never been on. My camera is resting on driftwood in the sand while I hold three leashed rescue dogs with one hand. I set the self-timer and gently touch the shutter with my free hand. The dogs know the beeping sound–they stay still but my mind doesn’t. It’s a measured poetic moment in the early hours of the Third of July.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
