I stood on the rocks. The day was bright and the sea still and glass-like. Looking out to the horizon I felt the sheer stillness of the moment. Then just beyond the soft swell, the water, as if touched by some invisible breath, rippled in to life. Something had arrived. It was strange and almost mystical.
Suddenly, a stiff breeze whipped around my legs and face, and then, left as quick as it came.
I felt I’d been touched by something mysterious and transcendent. A profound sense of well-being, peace and gratitude came over me. Later I left with a lightness of step that was hard to describe.
