salt water

after a heavy visit home
i planned my summer vacation days to take a few days down at the jersey shore just a few days later.
I brought two magazines, two books, a journal, and an iPod
But once I got there, the only thing I could bring myself to do was sit and take in the waves, the sunshine and the breeze.
the sound of a wave crashing is perhaps my favorite sound on earth.
"there is something very healing about salt water," someone in my office said to me.
and that is just exactly how i feel right now.
i feel a little bit better.
i walked away with a nice tan, a fresh face, and a load off my chest.
it makes me think that maybe i can live somewhere by the beach but more importantly maybe I should.
it is just that good.
