Happy National Puppy Day to my beloved Black Labrador Teal! You have been my best friend throughout my entire adult life. Thank you for your unconditional love and the unremitting happiness you bring me. There is loyal, then there is loyal, and then there is you. Even at 15 years young, you will always be my puppy! .

While growing up in Montana, landlocked for most of my childhood and adult life, I'd always felt a draw towards the dominance of the ocean. Its vastness, its strength, its unpredictability. A sleeping giant resting on the coast of our comfort zone. Always, possessing the ability to take us out of our cozy terrestrial existence and challenge our notion of what power really is. ⠀

I find it provides me a humble reminder that we, as humans, may not have as much control over this world as we think. ⠀

Without fail, Northern California consistently leaves me in awe. The sheer amount of natural beauty within 30 minutes of my doorstep is absolutely mind blowing. I simply can't check spots to visit off of my list as fast as I add them.
Conveniently, a problem I'm happy to live with 😁

Most of this week, the ocean has been a man-eating behemoth with whom only the most battle hardened would dare get in the ring with.

However, as is true in life, there's a silver lining to everything. The powerful swell outside of the Golden Gate carried itself deep into the bay forming the perfect point break with Alcatraz and the San Francisco skyline to spectate.

I sat for close to an hour, watching this flock of gulls perched on a rock, in hopes that they might do some modeling for me. As luck would have it, just as the sun began it's finally descent, a couple of sea lions started making a ruckus and the flock came alive.
As someone who generally errs on the side of impatient, nature provided me yet another valuable lesson.... good things come to those who wait.

I never realize how much I miss the sound of silence until I go home to Montana. When you remove the white noise and take some time with just you and your breath, it's amazing the ease of just being in the moment.⠀

Sometimes you need to leave a familiar place so you can return to discover the beauty that was there all along. ⠀
