“Fresh activity is the only means of overcoming adversity.”

It was long weekend…and I also had a chance to look at nature closely.!
A life close to land and sea and the significance of We!
We went to the Monterey beach where one can see the actual meet of land and sea :D I have always heard of this imaginary point where land and sea meets in poems and prose’s!

At daybreak, on the bleak sea-beach,
A fisherman stood aghast,

To see the form of a maiden fair,

Lashed close to a drifting mast

It was amazing…often when I look at nature here in California. I always, get the true sense of God being the best creative person…and looking at that we as human’s imagination and creative thinking in paintings and poetries that we try to imitate him!
Across the lonely beach we flit,

One little sandpiper and I;

And fast I gather, bit by bit,

The scattered driftwood,

bleached and dry.

The wild waves reach their hands for it,

The wild wind raves, the tide runs high,

As up and down the beach we flit—

One little sandpiper and I.

I had a cool trail walk and then we went along the seashore where we saw the sea lions and other birds at the fisherman’s wharf…it was a union of nature and its creature where we as human were also inclusive: D

“Love is union with somebody, or something, outside oneself, under the condition of retaining the separateness and integrity of one's own self.” ~ Enrich Fromm

Some of the pictures will just speak more precisely as what I mean to say about after all that…trip! I had the chance to play volleyball and badminton after a long time I would say! But it was a worth break from the usual routine of life!

I was quite surprised when I saw a tamed monkey was around there...when I went near it was holding my hand so tightly and slowly gently it took my fingers to grab into its mouth when I just rushed out pulling my hand...gosh!!!! I could only wonder how smoothly and quitely it made me fall for him
“The obvious mathematical breakthrough would be development of an easy way to factor large prime numbers” ~ Bill Gates
I am planning to have more activities ;)

“Creative activity could be described as a type of learning process where teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.”
