Strolling through town without aim or direction; merely to enjoy the beauty of life and to live the life of beauty.

What a wonderful time to be a flaneur; one who strolls aimlessly to look, to see, to wonder. The still and quiet lend themselves to this wandering and wondering. This brief moment in time presents a perfect opportunity for a deeper observation and reflection than is usually possible. This quiet interlude is a gift. A chance to see the particular beauty of the present. To fully engage, free of distractions, in the everyday beauty of life that we so often miss.

 

The Story

The calm and quiet give a different feeling to Monterey. In the absence of the hustle and bustle of an internationally known tourist town, the true character shines through. The history and personality of the town begin to shine through in way that is more pronounced than when the streets are lined with people.

A Quiet Interlude

The beauty of light and life cannot be hidden, contained or darkened other than through our own decisions. Beauty always remains before us, it is we who looks away. It can only be darkened when we close our eyes to it and only avoided when we avert our glance. It is rekindled when we merely open our eyes and direct our gaze.

We see beauty when we look to it though we must look not through force but through openness.

"Ask and it shall be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it shall be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; and he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks it shall be opened." Luke 11:9
