Bittersweet Bliss

Brian Andreas, who writes the beautiful Story People nuggets ( wrote one of my favorite images called "Bittersweet":

She said she usually cried at least once each day not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful & life was so short.

I was reminded of this story yesterday when I simply had to sit down, breathe, and realize that, indeed, the experience I was having was my life, is my life.  I stood on the beach on the central California coast and my legs gave way and all I could do was sit and let tears run down my face.  I was not and am not sad.  I am awed.  I am letting go of the last little bits of exhaustion and disbelief.  I am breathing in wonder.  And I smile.
