Early Morning Thoughts

I woke up early, on our last day at Koh Samet Island, because I wanted to roam around a little while it is not yet hot. There were few people at the beach and many shops were still closed. I bet that many people were still asleep because they stayed awake late in the night.

Morning on Koh Samet Island

Early birds, like me, enjoyed the morning breeze. It is the perfect time to meditate. So, before my companions wake up, I decided to say my morning prayers on the rocks near the statues of the Koh Samet Island mermaid and her prince.

Sea of Koh Samet Island
Looking at the sea and sky.

The waves of the sea are soothing. Their coming and going has similar effect as the hypnotist's pendulum. It was a long time since I had this silent moment. I was alone most of the time but distractions are omnipresent. I have blogs to think about, activities at work, and anxieties for the future. Thoughts keep on buzzing in my head like aggressive bees.

I was praying the Holy Rosary and meditating on the Glorious Mysteries. I was also thinking of the current state of my life. I was trying to shed light on the road that I must take to so as to allow me to achieve some of my plans.

I was in the middle of my meditation when my companions saw me.

Oh well. Prayer time is over.
