(I couldn't help noticing these heavily laden women
heading down to the beach for a picnic as I was
leaving yesterday -- it's a familiar sight.)
Yesterday Steven and I took a long walk on the beachcollecting shells, rocks and pieces of glass. This always
reminds me of when I was a child at the summer
cottage my parents rented -- how my little brother and I
used to collect acorns. We used to pull our collections about in the
shallow water in beautiful little toy rowboats someone had
Well now Steven and I give each other the collections we
make and laugh as we do. I always feel that shopping is
redundant here where so many beautiful things are free.
Have an-enjoying-the-earth's bounty day.
