Love what you love



"You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on
your knees for a hundred miles through the desert,
repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of
your body love what it loves."
~Mary Oliver
(American Poet)

Yes, Mary Oliver! I was thinking just that last night with 3 cats in the bed. I met her last year. Thanks for another great photo of more gifts from the sea.

Those mussels look like a flock of soft blue butterflies gathered on a tree trunk.

You have such an artistic eye! Like blue butterflies until you look closer and then see the gifts from the ocean :)
