Beach Love Art

I made his heart with seaweed on a beautiful sunny day at the beach. It’s one of my favorite pieces, even though I’m not usually a fan of heart designs. I love creating art outside because it is a calming experience, akin to meditation for me. It is also non-toxic, doesn’t create waste and the supplies are free so everyone can make art.

Empowering Discussions

This is the Sound

This is the sound of waves crashing, sun shining, laughter, delightful squeals, my feet in the sand, the rush of catching a wave, the heat, the breeze, the cool drinks, my family, my friends, strangers all having a good time.

The memories of beaches past fill me with joy. Smiling and wishing this here and now could last forever. Knowing we will have to go home soon, but not worrying at all. I am in the moment and no dark memories, no pain, no sadness can creep in here. The only darkness here is the umbrellas shadow, the cool relieving shade that caresses my overheated body.

This is the sound of me happy.
