“The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.” ~ Isak Denison
I don’t know what it is about being near the beach –
Is it the briney smell of the salt water?
Is it the heat of the sun-warmed sand against my skin?
Is it the bright warmth of the sun kissing everything in sight?
Is it the rushing sound of the waves as they roll near the shore and ebb out to form again?
Perhaps it is the feeling, as I view the expanse of sea and sky, that any concerns I may have pale in comparison to the beauty of God’s creation?
What I do know with certainty is that I can fully relax while I am here. I revel in a sense of freedom that comes with the surroundings. Laughter comes easier and more frequently. No responsibilities pressing – – not that they don’t still exist, but I fully take a break.
Anything waiting, will still be waiting when I get back home.
