Day at the beach or Mona Vie widow

Sometimes there are days when you just need to rejuvenate your creative spirit. I've been thinking for months now about just driving over to the beach (which is less than an hour away) and walking on the beach. I kept thinking I would go with Doug but he's way too busy now with his Mona Vie (Acai berry juice) business to take the time to just hang out anymore. I call myself a "Mona Vie" widow since I'm on my own 24/7 most of the time. This is also the week my mother passed away seven years ago. When she told me her cancer had returned and this time there was no help, she said she could face death, because she had no regrets in her life. So when I don't do something like take a walk on the beach to help find my balance, I think about living a life with no regrets. I made the drive and it was a beautiful day. Sunny skies, big crashing waves and not another person in sight. I stopped at all the state beaches (I think there were about 10) that didn't have a car in the parking lot and checked it out. On one beach someone had collected large pieces of driftwood and made sculpture. It was a great day!

The beach is a perfect way to rejuvinate. I'd be willing to tag along anytime (if I didn't work so much lately!) I love the beach.

Wow - that sounds like a great day.

I'm sorry about your mom.

Who knew that cruel juice could widow a girl?? :)

I love walks on the beach - they do a body & mind good. Keep holding your mom in your heart.
My mom's birthday would be next Monday. Maybe I'll go for a walk on our Lake Michigan beach soon. It is only an hour away for me too!

One more thing - I propose that you, me, Debbie & whoever else wants to - synchronize a beach walk on our respective shorelines sometime in our near future, eh?

Patti's idea of a simultaneous walk for the 3 of you sounds great! ((hugs)) to you :)
