I have stood here before looking out into the ocean, feeling overwhelmed by the beauty in nature. The water washing over the rocks strewn across its path, foam building as the water glides back and forth against the beach. It is almost hypnotic. The noise of the gulls scawing as they fly against the wind current laughing at their own cleverness. The hiss of the spray as it rushes through small patches of time worn boulders that have formed pathways. The fragrant smell of salt in the air and sea grass. The winds brushing against all of me. Being in my moment as my soul fills with a sense of happiness I find difficult to convey.
I was born in the Summer. I feel more at peace with myself during the summer. I look forward to the longer days. I love being able to do more while wearing less, instead of doing less while wearing more. My perfect season and it goes away so quickly. The days are getting shorter. I can feel the tide starting to turn. I know there is still time to take that long walk, or go on an adventure, or visit the ocean…but
the Fall is calling. I am getting restless. It is time to go make memories.

Mmm, lovely. It’s funny: here in Australia I dread Summer, as it lasts SO long (Nov-late March), & just long for Autumn & Winter…
Thanks…I have lived in New England my whole life. We tend to have 4 very distinct seasons. I love the Summer/Fall the best, the other two step children not so much.
