A neighbor stopped by to say hello the other day and told me his wife and him were taking a trip to a Caribbean island. The images of the beach were fresh in my mind and I couldn’t stop thinking about wanting to return myself, the rest of the day, maybe a few days. Not that I’m well enough off to even think of going to a Caribbean island myself. But Ocean City or Bethany Beach, will suit me just the same. Better almost because I don’t have to fly to get to them. And they have been our destination for many decades.

About a week later (today) my wife asked in an email “When are we going to the beach again?” Well that’s it. Sometime in October we are going to take at least a day trip to the shore on a nice day. It’s a good thing to do. One final look at the ocean, sun, sand and eating crabs to get me through the winter season and give me hope on the other side.

Worrying about a friend of mine. Actually I worry about my friends all the time because I love them all. But one in specific as of late and I’m still trying to find something that works that can help. It pains me to see those close, struggle so.

We are our own worst enemy. I believe someone has said that before but its playing out in reality now days. So lets hope and work for the best and maybe we can overcome the many weaknesses we seem to want to advertise to the world. And lets hope that someone rises up that we can trust, had good ideas, the ability to communicate and is willing to work with all of us to improve our time in this world together.

Have a great day all.
