Tuesday, Tuesday

The daughter's coming home. I'm working away. I'm missing the ocean, and day after tomorrow is my favorite holiday of the year.

Life is good.

Life is exceptional. Last week I wandered around, a smile on my face at all times. Because I was happy. Oceans make me happy. I've had a kind of a scary normal life in the past two years, and I tend to feel a little anxious that something bad could happen again. I'm meditating to remember the feeling those lovely days of last week gave me, because I don't remember feeling anxious for a second.

Don't tell me that's because last week wasn't real life, and real life makes demands. I've got my hands over my ears and my eyes, and I'm saying real life can be as relaxed as a week at the beach. You just have to work harder at making it so! ;-)

HI Anna! I found you. Looked for a website but I couldn't find one. Hello new friend who feels like an old friend. I too miss the beach, had some withdrawal! but things are back to normal, whatever that is, here at home. I was inspired by the wonderful women I met, working to get back into the groove of writing again. Hope to keep touch with my two writing buddies!

Elaine! Yahoo! I'm so glad you stopped by! I've been having email problems, so I wasn't sure if my emails were even getting into cyberspace. ;-) Turns out both our other friend and I have been sending to the wrong address. (Email to your actual address to follow if my Internet access stays up!) I do feel so lucky we met--it really has been more like catching up with an old friend. And I can't wait to hear what you've been working on.

I'm guessing the family was awfully glad to have you home! Hope tomorrow is a wonderful holiday for you and yours!
