I admit, I'm still trying to hang on to summer! The sun, the sand, the sea, oh how you live in me...my head & heart tell me I'm a mermaid, but the mirror disagrees! Let me give you a peek into my morning at our beach house. I wake up to the sound of the waves & know I must have my cup of coffee with milk, or, milk with coffee is more like it! Sitting on the balcony, overlooking the sea, I know that it's time to get dressed, grab my electric blue net bag & head to the beach for an early morning treasure hunt! I'll walk the same beach that I've walked for many years, but every day is a new adventure for me! I never know what I'll see or find. Sea shells, sea glass, pottery pieces, the occasional crab & a few early morning walkers are sure to be found. Have you ever been followed down the water's edge by a sea gull? Well, let me tell you they aren't as shy as you would think! I finish off the early morning "hunt" with a swim. Me, myself & I are usually the only swimmers that early! Back up at the house, I'm ready to check my emails & begin my new creations, filled with new spirit!
These September days are greyer & chillier, but I'm not slowed down, determined to squeeze every last breath out of summer, until we meet again, next June! If you are looking for me, don't rush to town, as I'll be the last mermaid to leave!
