drink the wild air

I'm so envious of people who live near the ocean. It's so serene. You can stare off into the horizon and feel peace, nothing at that moment is important except for the wind whipping around your hair.
I love laying out under the sun, just me and my thoughts.  Mostly thinking when that next little breeze will come by and cool off my burning skin.
My sister and I walked along the beach watching the sun rise one morning.  We people watched...we found two perfect sea shells that the seaweed tractor hadn't destroyed yet.  We wandered into the Spanish River Park hoping we wouldn't see any spiders the size of our faces (we didn't), just Jurassic sized leaves.  We both felt whole again. Being together, talking, listening, laughing. 
Watching the sunrise on a peaceful beach makes you think. You can't help it. It forces you to look into your life and think about its purpose. It asks you how you can simplify it, make it more beautiful. I think I'm ready for the challenge. That salty sea air sure does wonders for your mind...
