Although I can't be there this time, here's a bit of a thought for those that are.

I tried meditating in the lower lot today. After a few minutes of gazing out on the ocean these words floated up into my consciousness. "An impersonal, life -creating vastness that is ever-changing." The metaphor touched me deeply. It seemed as if time stopped, or at least was on hold. A feeling of peace came upon me, or more accurately, from within me. Then a new thought wafted, "I am alive in an impersonal universe and I can't help but take it personally." Then another thought, "Life is sustained by eating other life. What's up with that?" Then one more, "Ever-changing is just a pompous way of saying $#!% happens." Realizing I'd strayed from my meditation, I took a deep cleansing breath and once again looked out at the ocean. That simple joy and serenity I'd felt earlier returned immediately, followed by a new thought, or rather, sensation. "I urgently need to urinate." I looked around and saw no facilities. Perhaps the campers up above had blown up all the portapotties again. Desperate for relief, I i looked back at the ocean before me and heard these words calmly whispered in my mind. "Impersonal also means I will never judge you."

The water was cold, but I managed.
