Super Bloom on the Edge
Facing a steep cliff overlooking the Pacific, with fog obscuring the horizon, it looks like people are walking to the edge of the world.
The view on this bluff is even more stunning than usual, covered by a dense carpet of yellow wildflowers. Orange, purple, white and pink combine with various shades of yellow to create a mesmerizing color palette.
This week I’ve been on watch for loved ones who are “on the edge” in a different way, battling dire health problems. Regardless of family worries, daily duties can’t be ignored. Having a severely autistic son who is totally dependent means I can’t stop for long to ponder matters of life, death and love.
When taking my son on a walk this week, heart aching with worry, there was magic when we rose to the top of the bluff. A brushstroke of yellow covered all the way to the cliff edge, leaving space in my mind for nothing but awe at the power and beauty of nature.
May we all embrace the daily miracles nature offers, and keep putting one foot forward!
This week’s HikingAutism Hike Notes from the archives is Mori Point, a great place for viewing the Pacific, sometimes with whales in view, or taking a walk along the beach after walking Bootleggers Steps down from the bluff.
