Not everyone enjoys being in the spotlight. Finding a peaceful spot away from the hassle of the modern world – somewhere to quietly reflect, meditate and generally sort things out – can help soothe the troubled mind. But too often sounds, lights, schedules etc intrude. As the poet William Wordsworth wrote, ‘The world is too much with us.’
The figure in the photograph is a small sculpture of the Weeping Buddha. It is believed by some that the Weeping Buddha takes away the grief and troubles of the world. In return, he bestow peace and provides strength to those who rub his back.
Stay with this image for a while. Hear the gentle lapping of the water at the sea’s edge. Feel it playing around your toes. Notice the glow of the late afternoon sun on the groynes – feel its warmth. Taste the salt on your lips. Sense the soothing rhythm of the calm, blue sea. Relax.
That was my holiday!
