There is so much craziness going on these days, sometimes you just have to hold on tight and soar along with it all. The beach is the place where I think about and try to sort it all out every morning, and where I feel better about everything, every time.
That's often because I chance upon things that are just so great that they make the rest of your day not only tolerable, but blessed. We came upon this guy the other day, making what looked like the back of a submerged dragon from the wet sand back to the dry, at a fairly frantic pace, early on a weekday morning.
It made me smile inside and out to see a grown man, by himself, just making some temporary cool thing, just for the fun of it, it seemed.
What a great lesson. In spite of, or because of, how much of a zoo life can get, we must remember to have fun. To CREATE fun. Just for the hell of it. Otherwise I believe we may be missing the point of our lives - to ENJOY them. No matter what.
