A month ago I was at the beach- Long beach Island NJ actually. It's magical there. But something else happens at nearly any beach you go to. It's a transformation in some ways. Downshift. Chill. Remove yourself from reality. It's a good thing and also necessary to clear your mind and invigorate the creative juices. I go with my BFF and we play, we create (yes, really- we are back in kindergarden coloring and pasting with Elmers glue-) The boundaries fold, we bring on the magic markers, the paints, the fabric and just have fun and explore. Then the magic happens. Ideas ignite, light bulb moments are a dime a dozen. A masterpiece is created! But it wouldn't have if we didn't give the space for it to be. It also helps if you are a little bit of a nerd. So, we come away with sand between our toes, photographs to prove it, new creations and memories until the next time. Life is good at the beach.
