beach people

"maybe we are beach people," i say.
"i've always thought that," he says.
and after today, i confirm, that yes, i am beach people.
even in a sweatshirt, curled up in a sheet, i am happy at the beach
i am transported with the waves
i am renewed.
the more i get away from new york, the more i consider my life without so much....much
there is a part of me that wants to get quiet and the sea makes everything quiet.
i consider getting rid of facebook and blogs and emails and television and just being
-writing-
"i'm going to take the next year to find my writing life," i tell him
"cool" he says with a smile and a nod as if to say,
you are ready for your journey.
