Beach Yogis

“Most of us are in touch with our intuition whether we know it or not, but we’re usually in the habit of doubting or contradicting it so automatically that we don’t even know it has spoken.” – Shakti Gawain

“A glorious sunset, a beautiful flower, the delightful songs of happy birds, the silence of a moonlit night, the smile of a little child, the placid waters of a lake, wooded mountains, sweet music and devotional songs, a noble, generous act-all these elevate the mind, remind us of God and increase our faith” ~ Sri Swami Sivananda

Umgeni River called me back two weeks in a row. I never rated it much but assure you there are many hidden angles.

Today (16 August 2015) is Tanya Vermeulen De Vries‘s birthday. She is a kind caring soul who is the Mother of all Mother’s. Highly capable in the home and at work, and now resident overseas. She has had to carry the unbearable burden of an incomprehensible loss, and I sincerely hope that today and from hereon she is blessed tremendously – and will now start to reap the benefits of her goodness.

This photo was called “Another Blessing”. I made some cosmetic changes this morning and version 2 is called “Tanya”.

“A strong faith meets sorrow with strength, suffering with fortitude, disappointment with optimism, loss with cheerfulness, and failure with perseverance. True, strong faith turns all situations into opportunities for progressing Godward. In it there is no such thing as failure, no such thing as disappointment” ~ Sri Swami Sivananda

This morning’s mission was to take photos of flowers, and that I did later at Botanic Gardens. But before that, it was back to Umgeni River with my old entry-level camera – a great & faithful companion. I was going to make this photo a little BLUE but instead went Fanta-Ballistic 😉.

Shad Fever

Sunil Bali: “When you get a small stone in your shoe, how quickly do you remove it?
I suspect you take off your shoe fairly quickly? Similarly, when you’re caught in the rain, you quickly put up your umbrella or get out of the rain. From the day we’re born we’re programmed to change anything we find uncomfortable: babies cry when they need to be winded, are hungry or need their nappy changing. But when it comes to our work and the workplace, we’re more likely to grimace and bear it. Why? More often than not, because we might fail or get rejected if we stay true to our conviction and take authentic action to disrupt the status quo. But it’s when authenticity and enthusiasm ooze from your every pore, that you become attractive and attract all the people and resources you need to succeed. When asked what’s the best piece of advice he’s ever given to his children, Roald Dahl replied, “Its so important to be an enthusiast in life. Above all become passionate. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” When it comes to their work, the likes of Branson, Buffet and Gates haven’t compromised. They’ve remained engrossed, bubbling with energy and enthusiasm. Criticism and failure have caused no more than a ripple in their teacup. And talking of tea, cakes with artificial cream, toast with artificial butter, plastic flowers, plastic people ….. Life’s too short.”

It was Shad (Elf – fish) fever down at Umgeni River Mouth this morning. I wasn’t sure where to go shoot at 05:30 and then thought that I hadn’t shot this location a lot so off to Umgeni it was. There were no clouds until just after sunrise when S-Westerly I think started pumping and made it a little interesting (just in the nick of time).

It was “just another sunrise at 2nd Beach Port St Johns“. A few late night party chaps stopped for a while in their car to shoot selfies, two crayfish salesmen walked past, the receding tide crashed medium waves into the rocks where I was and at The Gap; otherwise the beach was empty and still. Nearby, across the road behind me, Amapondo Backpackers / Amapondo IBackpackers was still asleep.
