It is amazing how “great minds think alike” 🙂  He he he!   Today’s post by my friend Aaron von Frank was like he had walked through my brain 🙂  For a long time now I’ve been thinking everything he mentions in this post.  It is all so true.  Maybe this is why I have not been spending so much time on social media and taking longer to post to my blog.

There are other important things in life to focus on more often.

Malpe Beach

Ocean View

One of the PostADAy suggested topics: “What is your dream vacation?” Here is one of mine.

The first dream vacation which comes to mind would be staying in a lovely cottage a little up from the beach overlooking the ocean. Each morning I would have my coffee on the porch as I watch the sun come up. Later I would take a long walk along the beach, stopping occasionally to sit and look at the view. What a special delight when I see some dolphins, whales, and seals. I love hearing the water splashing the shore. After awhile I would continue my walk, sometimes collecting special sea shells.

What a beautiful and inspirational time to let my mind wander as it opens to whatever visions appear for the next poem or story. Then…

Back at the cottage I would again sit on the big rocking chair porch with a pad of paper and pen to write down the inspirations I collected during my walk. I stop long enough to have a little lunch, then back to writing again. A few hours later I stop writing for the day and make preparations for a light dinner, which will be enjoyed at the café table and chairs at one end of the porch, with a glass of wine.

As the afternoon turns to evening and the sun is heading slowly to the horizon I take a short stroll along the beach. I return to the cottage, put on some easy listening music. Since it gets pretty cool in the evening I start a fire in the fireplace and curl up in a big chair with a cup of hot chocolate. A wonderful end to a beautiful day.
