I feel like I should say something about the tragic events in Paris. But I just don't know what. It feels like just yesterday that my home city banded together and got through the Boston Marathon bombing. My heart hurts for the people of Paris. I hope they know that the world cries with them and supports them.
When my mind won't shut off or emotion overwhelms me, the ocean is one of the things that I gravitate to. The consistency of the waves rolling in and out, the smell of salty air and the sound of the waves are calming to me.
I jokingly tell people that someday I'll pack up and leave my little corner of the world. But the reality is - if the ocean isn't nearby, that will never happen. I'm just not made to live in a land-locked state. I need the ocean too much.
What is it you like best about where you live?
