Fully watered

As I walk across the dune grass, I can hear the wet surf just over the ridge. The wind carries the salty smell of the beach onto my clothes, in my hair, across my skin and I am refreshed. I take a deep breath. And another. And again and again.

Restored. Renewed. Calm. Filled to the brim with fresh air from the ocean. And my soul fully watered.

Tomorrow I paint. Before anything else. I paint!

Along with your "soul sipping." I went to see Deborah De Witt in she and her husband's Documentary about restoring the wetlands in Tigard next to Cook Park. I highly recommend it - in fact, it sold out and they had to have a second seating. Ready to Paint!
