Sites of Life a poem by RestLeSs D
As I stand in the foaming sea
I grasp that God has created
All of this for me.
His sky of brilliance reigns above me,
His sea of freshness sings below me.
The waves, they crash upon the sand,
The sand warms me on my way.
The life inside me pushes me onward,
My own true love, I find it today.
I discern that I am truly alive,
I will live life to it’s best.
Striving to understand new ways of giving,
I will now put these to the test.
It’s OK to be alone, by myself,
And feel content as I am.
An to share everything that I want.
Knowing what I may never have,
Yet being thankful for what I’ve got.

Oceanside Pier at sunset May 2009. A wonderful warm Spring day.
Shots taken with Nikon Coolpix 8400 w/unipod.
A compilation of 2 HDR images & 1 sunset shot in Oceanside, CA, USA; Post processed: Digital painting created by blending in PSCS2 using overlay, layer masking, blend modes and PS native filters: Artistic+Dark Strokes
This is one of my favorites because the original photos are my own and the sunset worked well with the pier shot.
