2015 Fiji - I was plowing through ocean, the reef and its tidal pools - feeling it was nice, but nothing special. My husband chose to sit down in shallow water near shore - his head was above water and he watched closely the movement of the algae and seaweed, the snails, the tiny fish hiding, and the reef itself. I wandered back to him, knelt down, and was in awe of all amazing life-forms and beauty that was right there in front of me, but I had been missing because I was just rushing through the water and looking at the surface only. Perception deepens when you slow down and allow yourself to be immersed in the awesome beauty which surrounds you.
