The Emotional Vibes of Florida Skies as experienced aboard Take Me There!
Good afternoon sailing friends! While last week’s blog described my amazing shrimp ceviche recipe and was created especially for my foodie friends, this week’s post is for my emo friends; the ones that I sit and have deep loving conversations with while we laugh and shed a few tears. Even if you are not one of those people, you will still appreciate the photos of Florida skies included in this post so hang in there with me for just a few minutes.
Like many of you, I’m one of those people that use my phone to take pictures, and more pictures, and more pictures and don’t even think about how many images are being accumulated until I get the dreaded message that I am out of storage space. UGH!! While I do not look forward to the technical process of clearing out my phone, I am inspired by the opportunity to revisit meaningful moments over the last few years. Like this one taken of Steve and me just a few months ago.
The chance to revisit photos provides the opportunity to look at them through a different lens. While I was recently reviewing my camera roll and deciding which pictures to move to my computer, I was drawn to the emotions that I was feeling as I looked at the Florida skies during various sailing charters. The emotional vibes that were stirred from these photos of Florida skies was a bit overwhelming. How is it that pictures containing various amounts of clouds, sun, and sky could arouse such incredible emotional vibes? While we all realize that a picture says a thousand words, pictures also tug at our heartstrings and have the possibility of stirring up powerful emotions. I feel that way when I look at this picture of Take Me There that was taken a few years ago.
We have all oohhed and ahhhed over beautiful sunsets, but have you ever dug deeper and considered the breadth and depth of the emotions that are being summoned up by these visual cues?
Like with this picture… We were entering Burnt Store Marina for the first time aboard Take Me There and we took this picture looking back over our shoulders. We said goodbye to where we had come from and were saying hello to a whole new life. We were beginning a new chapter in our lives as the operators of a sailing charter business in Punta Gorda. When I look at this picture I feel EXHILARATED! The sun was setting on a previous chapter in our lives and the next morning we would rise to a new day!
Are you ready to see more photos of Florida skies? I hope you enjoy exploring the emotions that are created by these experiences of Florida skies aboard Take Me There.
We look forward to creating these kinds of memories with you soon! Just say, TAKE ME THERE!
