The beautiful sandcastle I photographed on the beach yesterday morning is probably gone today, but I love discovering them and appreciate the work people put into building them. It always puts a smile on my face.
Take time to enjoy the beach, build a sandcastle of your own, lay on your back and look for funny animal shapes in the clouds. Relax. Take a deep breath. Listen to the surf. There will always be deadlines and shopping lists and commitments in one form or another, but a postcard I once had proclaimed, "You'll never look back and wish you had spent more time at the office."
"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
~~ Mark Twain (Samuel Langhorne Clemons)
