I finally downloaded what pictures I have left (meaning what pictures my phone didn’t erase) from our last trip. So you’re in for some peaceful treats (at least I think they’re treats) over the next few days.

Sentinal Sea Oats

Topsail Beach, North Carolina.

Quote of the day: “In the end, it’s only the moments that we have, the kiss on the palm, the joint wonder at the furrowed texture of a fir trunk or at the infinitude of grains of sand in a dune.  Only the moments.” — Susan Vreeland

Daily gratitudes:
Discovering a new destination
Playing fashion police
How Mr. Man likes belly rubs
Falling asleep on MKL’s shoulder
Storm clouds over the mountains

I love the way the sea paints endless pictures in the sand.

Topsail Beach, North Carolina.

Quote of the day: “Sensuality does not wear a watch but she always gets to the essential places on time.  She is adventurous and not particularly quiet.  She was reprimanded in grade school because she couldn’t sit still all day long.  She needs to move.  She thinks with her body. ” — J. Ruth Gendler

Daily gratitudes:
Hugs and kisses when I am teary
Trying to help Kelsea find a metaphor for herself
That when Mr. Man sits in my lap, he covers my entire torso
Pigeons when they are flirting
Throw-together spicy dinners

It was a lovely, relaxing day. I’m adjusting to having the house to myself, and spent most of the day tidying up, playing classical music, and reading in Thunder Cat’s Chair in the sunshine. Kelsea and I celebrated a late Mother’s Day by going to look at wedding dresses, stalking babies, and having Chinese food for dinner.

Jost van Dyke, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the Day: “Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead.” — Louisa May Alcott

Daily gratitudes:
Organizing
Pretty things
Hugs
The motion of the clouds
Having my daughter drive me places

Have you ever been on a beach with sand so brilliantly white and water so passionately blue that it moved your spirit and sparked your soul?

Pomato Point

Pomato Point, Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the Day: “On soft Spring nights I’ll stand in the yard under the stars – Something good will come out of all things yet – And it will be golden and eternal just like that – There’s no need to say another word.” — Jack Kerouac

Daily gratitudes:
A lovely day
Getting the knee-high grass one-third mowed with the push mower
Air conditioning
Old friends
Kelsea

Still waiting for warmth worth basking in here in Colorado.

Sunset Seagull

Anna Maria Island, Florida.

Quote of the day: “Love is the voice under all silences, the hope which has no opposite in fear; the strength so strong mere force is feebleness: the truth more first than sun, more last than star…” — e.e. cummings

Daily gratitudes:
Lingering goodbyes
My duck robe
The rain at night
My faux holstein cowboy boots
MKL’s wonderful texts

 

It was cold today – yes, apparently I am talking about the weather – but my hot flashes make the cold tolerable, though my floor felt like ice this morning. The hot flash phase of a woman’s life would be a perfect time to visit an ice hotel, though I fear I would melt anything I touch. And I don’t think MKL is too keen on accompanying me. 

Today’s photo is in honor of Dutch, whose story is to be found here:

Dutch loves pink. And even though he’s not mine, I love Dutch. He has survived (so far) where my Tug did not. Please send him prayers and healing juju.

Topsail Beach, North Carolina.

Quote of the Day: “I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”  —  Audrey Hepburn

Daily gratitudes:
Loving cyber-communities
The writer’s group I attended this evening
Seeing MKL
Touch
Novels that make me talk back to them

 

Spring seems to be oversleeping in Colorado because it’s COLD and I need to remember that there are places like this that I can get to in less than a day. That’s a comfort, isn’t it?

Cow Wreck Beach, Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “Winter lies too long in country towns; hangs on until it is stale and shabby, old and sullen.”  — Willa Cather

Daily gratitudes:
A roof over my head
MKL
Doing gratitudes when it’s hard
Dried roses
Busy house spirits

I have been quiet and uninspired of late, not wanting to write, to create, to do anything but read, and I do not know why. I do not feel like myself, and hope that it is only indicative of the passage of seasons, winter into spring, and that I will wake again to myself soon.

Anegada Sunset

Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “Every action of our lives touches on some chord that will vibrate in eternity.”  —  Edwin Hubbell Chapin

Daily gratitudes:
Cozy snowed-in Saturdays
Laughter
MKL’s voice
The songs of new birds
Snuggly Thunder Cat
Trying to emerge from my shadow

A much-missed, familiar view….

BVIs January 2010 2551

Setting Point, Anegada, British Virgin Islands.

Quote of the day: “She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that’s important—you know ” —  Marilyn Monroe

Daily gratitudes:
Pigeons with pizza crusts
A rose for my love
Water
Spring approaching
Staying hopeful

I would have to flip the arrows around on this sign so both were pointing in the same direction – towards me, which is towards the beach.

Martinis and Bikinis

Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island, Florida.

Quote of the day: “When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”  —  Rumi

Daily gratitudes:
That MKL will buy me a rose when I am down
Thai comfort food
Loving energy between two people
Sore muscles from doing squats
That I can leave work at 5:30 and it is still light out
