Off to the Beach...


Well, it's been an interesting week. I never plan enough time to prepare for a trip... So scurry, scurry I go to get everything together. ;P
But whatever I forget, I guess I didn't need it that bad (unless it's McKenna's diapers?! lol)

I leave you with a smile, a cheerful good-bye, good thoughts and many blessings until I return!

Be on the lookout for my auto 50th post and GIVEAWAY while I'm away!!!



Beach Sand by Raymond A. Foss

Maybe it is the memories
the change of pace that brings us there
the sense of vacation
maybe the smell of the place
the sights of the gulls, the dunes, the grasses
but oh it is the feel of it,
the crunch and slide of it
the feeling of beach sand
so different from dirt, soil, loam
no, not earthy, moist, rich,
but oh so granular and gritty
even when wet,
moveable paper spreading under toes
sliding beneath the soles
smoothing my skin
clearing my mind
unburdening me of the rest
drawing me to the tactile, the feel
of beach sand...
