Gorgeous San Simeon challenged me to stop drawing and to silence my mind. Instead of grasping to remember every beautiful thing and instead of frantically drawing everything in sight, I slowed down, walked barefoot on the rocks, and matched my pace to the rhythm of the tides. Sometimes to really take in a place, to really feel connected, I have to put my adgenda aside and let myself be consumed by the vastness of the present moment, especially when emerssed in Nature. I found that there has to be an alignment of my spirit, my breath, and my intention to the land in-between my toes before I am allowed to partake in the creative energy that the land holds.
