Bright Spots

This morning when I basted another block for Palace of the Soul, I included a bright spot of red, which is not really as bright as in this photo, but echoes the colour of another part of the cloth. And then I went to get the mail and experienced another bright spot in my day: the arrival of a bobbin lace pouch from Deanna that I won last month on her blog at: http://eclectic-meanderings.blogspot.com/. Thank you Deanna! I love the fine lace and the colour

matched the ocean today



where I saw more bright spots like this arbutus bark and a chartreuse golf ball in the sea froth


and then there was this creature buried and emerging from the sand,




which I missed at first, as I walked by, because it was covered with water, but then I went back for a look when several seagulls circled above me and one dived to inspect what it may have thought were crab legs but are actually rope. I was fooled, too.

The gift is sweet and your images of the day are pure synchronicity especially the beach and emerging creatures! Blessings! Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
