There is no doubt about the healing power that water holds. Up and down every coast you find people packed together to dip their toes into the surf, maybe even brave a plunge. From sunrise to sunset we sit on sandy blankets along shorelines listening to the pulsing tides, and something that might have been slightly crazy inside us settles down a bit. We may be 60% water but it is far more than that physical fact that drives us to land’s end.
What is it about freedom that seems so American? What drives our pride in expressing the core of our individuality? What causes us to gather in community on picnic blankets and around charcoal grills from east to west on this 4th of July sharing what we have with friends and family alike? What is the spirit of Independence we celebrate today?
Currently out of the ice and cold…
Take a moment or hour or week to recharge. Read a book, or if you’re able travel further. You’ll be so glad you did!
I’ll fill you in on my Cali adventure next week, xxoo
Currently on break from all my normal routines in all my normal places, and instead am taking in parts of our world I’ve never seen before, with three quite hilarious friends. We’ve discovered so much, especially that this planet is filled with more beauty than imaginable.
Until next week! xxoo
