This has been one of the most trying times of my life. I go in and out of losing the will to move on, to carry forward. But last night I had a dream that I wanted to live in these brand new apartments that were just built in Coney Island. No such apartments were built, but in my dream they were floor to ceiling windows and you had a view of the ocean and beach below and that feeling of the beach and summer was so prevalent in the dream, it reminded me of happiness. I am hoping that reminder becomes reality. Please share your stories with me and maybe we can help one another. What are you going through? How do you deal with it?
I took this photo in the summer of 2010 on a Brooklyn beach (AKA The Borough By The Sea). It is one of my favorite photos ever! My Mom and I spent the entire day on the beach, it was hot and amazing. We took the photo past 7, I believe, the tide had receded considerably, which made it seem that you could just walk into and keep walking forever into the ocean; and the evening had begun to spread out against the sky. The atmosphere was very relaxed and peaceful. I cherish this photo because it puts me right back in that place, in that mood and feeling. I can hear the ocean, the children playing, smell the saltwater and seaweed. Do you enjoy the beach as much as I do? Which beaches are your favorite? Send me your beach photos and I will post them as inspirations (with your credit, of course)!
