Happy Wednesday everyone ! Isn't Sherrie the best hostess ever. Today she'd like to know the place most comfortable to us and if you have a few minutes please check out what others have to say about their favorite Place.
This is a no-brainer. The place most comfortable for me = the OCEAN.
When I'm here all my worries drift-off with the waves; I breathe-in ever so slowly; I feel safe from the world; I slow down; I clear the fog that's in my head. Although, fog is good when it's not in your head :-) They say it's good for the complexion. Hey people, we may not be able to have a clear blue sky all the time, but we can all use a good moisturiser.
The Ocean (and by the way the Ocean is a She) grounds me, gives me balance and direction. I was born and raised further in land. Dave on the other hand grew up next to the ocean. We both decided when it came time to buy our home (30 years ago) that we would go in land and when we needed to see the ocean we would drive and visit anytime we needed to... and that's what we've been doing for the past 3 decades.
When the tide goes down - we dig for our supper. Dave and I spend a lot of our spare time beachcombing looking for driftwood and beach glass. When Life gets in the way - we head to the Ocean to find stillness and silence from the every day madness.
However, never take the beauty and calmness of the Ocean for granted. She's one moody girl. One minute, calm and soothing and the next minute raging waves hit the shore like thunder.
For all the beauty and comfort that I find here, a lot of families have experienced fear and sadness with the loss of family and friends.
