365 days of gratitude

“Look, the ocean,” my passenger exclaimed.

I looked and saw the sea I see every time I drive into town.

But my passenger was from Idaho and the ocean was a long, long way from home.

The proximity to the sea is something we Kiwis, none of whom are more than a couple of hundred kilometres from the coast, take for granted.

But when I go to town now, I remember my passenger’s excitement and look at the sea with fresh eyes.

 

Today I’m grateful for the sea and it’s proximity.
