A Note to My Kids

The tide was really low early this morning. I don't think I've seen it so far out before, and not even a red tide. Clear - no seaweed - no jellies, or 'plastic,' as the kids reminded me of how I sometimes refer to those stinging jellyfish. 

Noyac Bay is truly incredible. I wonder what's up with that? Summer's end, maybe?

The Magic of Children

"There is an exquisite feeling many of us had as children, that everything is good, that every day promises more excitement and adventure, and that nothing could every thwart our joy for the magic of it all. But somehow as we grew into adults,responsibilities, problems, and difficulties took their toll on us, we became disillusioned and the magic we once believed in as children faded and disappeared. It's one of the reasons why as adults, we love being around children, so that we can experience that feeling we once had, even if it's just for a moment."
The Magic by Rhonda Byrne

Vampires and Surround Sound

One thing is certain - I am not a vampire!

Vampires sleep during the day. I can't. I might try but it never works. I either find myself thinking about what I could be accomplishing, or I start writing stories in my too active mind. It's actually amazing that I sleep at all, but there are random days that I occasionally give it the old let's-see-if-this-works try. Like the other day, for example.
