Daydreams and Beach Scenes
In a perfect world we live on the beach, somewhere south of Los Angeles, and we have a brilliant life, one that's full of purpose and joy. We don't worry about a thing except sunscreen. But there's immigration to consider, and money, and there's also the notion that our lives our here. So maybe we can just scatter our days with as many daydreams and beach scenes as possible...every chance that we get, and we can make plans for bigger things, that with luck, we someday manage.
One week walking on warm sand, watching saltwater sunsets, and wearing board shorts more often than underwear isn't quite enough, but it's the most inspiring and relaxing intervention that we could muster in the middle of our chaotic lives. It was enough for now, and if that's all that we can manage, well, we'll take it.
One week with palm tree shadows and warm Gulf breezes was something to keep us daydreaming into March, and then that might be enough to get us through to the summer, and in the meantime we can dream and do, and make plans that make smiles. It'll have to be enough because in a perfect world, we'd snap photos like this every day.
It's good to be home, but it's better to call someplace drenched in sunshine and sand home, if only for a little while.
