I took these pictures on my second trip to Jamaica. We spent one evening on a small public beach and had quiet time and watched the sunset. A boy splashed in the water, people came and went and smoked and played reggae, and a little crab dug in the sand and glared at me for being there. It was very relaxing*.
*Relaxing like: take away those things in the back of your mind that you need to do. Clear away that clock, unstrap your watch. Forget your phone. Put that planner in a drawer along with everything you’re anxious about. No hurry, no rush, no tense feelings. No problems because it’s just a situation mon, it’ll work itself out! Ok, now, just wait around on the sunset and remember you have no control over it, all you can do is enjoy it.
*Relaxing like: “Be still and know that I am God.”
(this picture was taken by one of the teens on the trip and it’s blurry but I like it.)
