The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

Routine but never predictable ...

for the love of beach/sea glass
"If there is magic on this planet
it is contained in water"
~Loren Eiseley~
driftwood * beach glass * feathers
found treasures walking the beach
I think beach/sea glass is my birthstone
The moment I walk this path towards the water, 
I feel all the weight
I may be carrying on my shoulders
lift ...  Each walk may be different, but one thing is the same ... 
~ this is my place of welcoming bliss~

It was a very hot and humid weekend and the week has begun just as warm
but by the water, there is such a beautiful breeze ... 
"I have seafoam in my veins.
I understand the language of waves"
~Jean Cocteau~ 
A spot to sit , sip some water and just *be*
"Be the ocean.
Be ever changing but always the same.
Be simple and transparent with an entire world
deep down inside.
Full of odd and interesting creatures.
Be calm.
Be still.
But let yourself get wild and lost in a storm from time to time.
Have many homes on many shores
and be slightly different at every one.
Let people in.
Let them feel free and surround them with every bit of your being.
Ask for nothing in return.
Take in sharp rocks and the broken glass and return them back
as beautiful treasures.
Be routine but never predictable.
And be so loved 
that people spend their days sitting by your side.
Be free and vast and be deep and powerful.
All the while being completely moved
by something greater than yourself"
~Michael F Dubois~ 
Happy Monday

I have rarely been near a beach where you might find these beautiful pieces of glass. Your collection is grand.

hi Lisa ~ thank you so much! I am hoping to make some jewelry next with some of the larger pieces. So much to learn :-) I have walked beaches of pure sand with no glass/stones to be found and it is different ... I find myself "looking" even still! Hope you are having a wonderful day.
