Being cooped up in my house all by myself has been a challenge…and it’s only day 2. I am not one to sit around. I like interactions with people. I like activity. So as the sun came out and the temperature warmed I ventured out for a walk. I didn’t know where I was going or how long I’d be out for but off I went. At the very least I was hoping to clear my head of all the news flying around.
I found myself a half mile or so from my house on the beach. Instead of walking I sat. I sat and took in the small waves crashing. I watched several others walking and picking up collections of shells. I saw a man set up an office on a piece of driftwood (what’s better than water front when you have to work). A college student went by on a run. I ignored my phone beeping with new text messages. I just sat.
I let my mind wander. I let myself just breath. I let myself just be.
