How calming is the ocean? These photos from a hazy sunset last week fill me with such peace. One resolution in 2016 is to pay more attention to my senses. Reading A Natural History of the Senses by Diane Ackerman has everything to do with this!!! And finally accepting that I’m addicted to my phone, which is pointless.
I just spent a week in Cocoa Beach, FL visiting my grandmother. It rained all but two days, so I didn’t get as many freckles as I usually do when hitting the beach and pool. We played hours of dominoes and card games each night, and a week away with someone I love so much made the whole world disappear. No better way to start a new year.
Hopefully this year will be full of paying more attention to my surroundings. Feeling the ocean, hearing the birds, hugging my grandmother, tasting coconut macroons, smelling the coffee. It helps if this coffee is on a balcony overlooking tropical plants and the shore. Just taking it all in.
