It was a socked in grey morning but when we got to the beach it was sunny and beautiful. We walked a short distance together and I let them go on ahead. I sat down and took it all in. The sand was warm and kinda wet. It smelled so clean and fresh and the sun was warm and nourishing. How blue the sky is and the ocean a deeper blue with calm white waves rushing in. I just wanted to get up...which I did, and run into the water....which I didn't. My running days are over so I got up slowly and waded up to my ankles into the sea with the waves splashing up to my knees. The water is so cool and refreshing I could feel it in my toes and up through my body. I am being healed. I could smell and taste the water. Salt that's what I needed. My whole body tingled. I was one with the warm bright sun and the refreshing healing waters of the surprising calm Pacific Ocean. It all reminded me of when I was a little girl and played on the beach with my mother. I would run in and out of the cool water of the Atlantic Ocean and my mothers beautiful blue eyes would follow my every move She was watchful as a low flying hawk. My mother was stately but fun and she had long sharply legs and beautiful hands with long fingers painted bright red
We had a cute tiny summer house on Chesapeake Bay. Util my parents passed. We spent every weekend there. How I loved that place. Blue eyes would follow me and if, or most probably when, I would get stung by this flowing translucent jellyfish she would rush to me, put sand on the sting and make it all better then we would walk back up the road with her warm hand holding mine and I felt safe. Cool aid,lemonade and egg salad sandwiches, that she made ahead would be waiting for us. Yummy. And so would my daddy
I looked up the beach and Ivy and pax were on their way back frolicking, her hair blowing in the wind. It makes me so happy to be in this world as Ivy waved with a big smile on her face and Pax ran to meet me with a big smile on her face.
