wide open spaces

wide open spaces

When seeking a remedy to anything that might be ailing me, I have found that retreating to the wide open space of the coast is the best medicine. Something about the sea air, the soothing sounds, the rush of the ocean, the sand, and the infinite horizon that speaks to me; easing my soul, offering respite from anything and everything else.

There’s a new story on the I am Enough Collaborative from Deb Rox that speaks straight to that part of me that knows that part of who I am has come from my relationship to the ocean. As a gift to myself and an ode to my love and gratitude for one of Mother Nature’s strokes of genius is the creation of the Sea Sand Sky Necklacewith Bel Kai Designs was born. If you too subscribe to the healing properties of the ocean, you will love this necklace. There is something about it.

Do you have an affinity for the ocean? If not, where is your favorite place to go when you’re soul needs to let go and just be still and wholly loved and supported? I would love to hear (or see) where you go to find yourself?

    My answer is a bit odd…but when I need to "rejuv" I go to bed. Since I usually only sleep five hours a night (gotta love working two jobs) the process of crawling into bed in the middle of the day with a good movie and a hot cup of coffee is absolute heaven for me. : )

    A once-a-year refresher trip to San Diego and we stay on the bay….our room opens up to the beach and the water’s edge. There is nothing finer than getting up early in the morning and hearing the lappiing water and watching the early morning scullers out practicing.

    Oh Tracey, how this speaks to me. For the past month my soul has been quite literally screaming to take me to the water’s edge in hopes that the sea, sand and sky will soothe it. Because right now, as you know, my soul needs some serious soothing. Hopefully, soon, I can get there.

    I do totally get it about the expansive healing properties of the ocean’s tug & pull. But me? I find the heart of my Nature Zen in the Mountains. I grew up on the Piedmont of upstate South Carolina, just 45 minutes from the smokey Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, where I often return to vacation.

    Tracey, it’s been a while since I’ve been on here. I’ve been absent for a few months from the Best Shot Monday but hope to post on Monday about this month’s 1,000-year Flood here in Nashville. I really like the zen-energy that I’m feeling here in your photos and sweet, brief, contemplative thoughts from this point to what is on the top of the page at this day, May 29.

    Good work! And, Good for You!
