My daughter and I, we are Beach People. If we have spirit guides, ours is Jimmy Buffett.
Taking Friday off to go to the beach was probably the best idea I've had in a long time. Yes, it was only one day off.
But I cannot overestimate how highly restorative that one day was. Photosynthesis and phytoplankton are good for the soul.
Jimmy Buffett says it's grapefruit, Juicy Fruit, and mortal sin that are good for the soul, but I like to think my way is a little less fraught.
So I got some sand between my toes and some color on my face and some accidentally-ingested salps into my bloodstream, and I feel ready to take on the world.
Or at least my little slice of it, anyway.
For now. For a little while. For a couple of days.
For just a moment. But what a wonderful moment it is.
