I must be feeling a lot of guilt. Every day I am amazed and thankful that I am able to escape the gray skies and cold of Michigan but also think of family and friends I left behind to cope. I know what it is like because I spent many winters in Michigan. And I know how people feel at the end of February. They are looking forward to March because it has the promise of spring but there is also the reality of some really nasty weather.
In an attempt to alleviate my guilt and to help my northern friends escape for just a few minutes, I am taking you on a virtual morning walk on the beach. I didn’t do much walking because too many things caught my lens so it won’t be cardio-vascular for you either. This will take a little mental work on your part.
Feel the cool sand beneath your feet
and the warm sun on your arms.
Heavy dew on catamarans high up on the beach.
Smell of salt water,
gentle lapping of waves upon sand.
New tide shells
with long shadows from low morning sun.
Bird prints in the sand,
