Missing the sound

Leave a comment

I love the sound of waves hitting the shore. The last two mornings I’ve walked the beach and listened to them pounding away at what men try to preserve. I’ve soaked up the rhythms and tides. As well as some sand between the toes.

I did a fair amount of walking and it was great but with a foot issue, it’s rather painful tonight and affecting my spirits. But tomorrow morning will be different because I’m home and the sand and waves are far away again.

On the other hand, I still have a few days of vacation left to explore and get some more frames captured. So I’ll worry about swimming uphill next week and enjoying the good weather on tap.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • I could spend several lifetimes watching nature.
  • Though people-watching is also a ton of fun.
  • There are only 24 hours to take your daily meds.
  • There is nothing like your home bed and pillow.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
