“Our moments of inspiration are not lost though we have no particular poem to show for them; for those experiences have left an indelible impression, and we are ever and anon reminded of them.”
~ Henry David Thoreau
Today I just want to acknowledge that I am so lucky to live near a beach. I admit that I miss my mountains sometimes, but the beach is lovely and I am determined not to take it for granted. It gets a little busy during the height of the summer, but it offers free entertainment and activity, and endless possibilities! (I want to try paddle boarding…)
Even in winter, the coast offers a wonderful place to get away from the stress of life and obtain a little perspective. I am so infinitely small compared to the vastness of the Atlantic, my problems can’t be all that big either =).
I will say, though, that I very much miss living in a beach house like Husband and I were privileged to do last winter. It was cold and drafty, but I was able to take Ginger on a walk along the shore nearly every morning.
