Out of Season

The photo on this blog was taken this time of year at Hilton Head–after labor Day, after the season ends. Now the place has old folks like ourselves, and people with pre-schoolers–and of course a few who homeschool.

I am particularly drawn to those who are introducing their little ones to the ocean for the first time. I love to watch how gently¬† some introduce the reluctant ones–the children who fear what they do not know. If only we could show that love to others who fear the unknown, if only we could be more tolerant of the unknown ourselves, and recall those fears and how perfect love cast them away from us and let us experience the joy of discovery.

Love is never out of season.
