Our Beach Cottage

Today Anthony is sick with a flu-like thing: sore throat, aches and fever. I took us to e health food store and made sure to get Echinacea and Goldenseal tincture ( with honey- yum!! ) and all sorts of good-for-you goodies to make him feel better.

I personally say better to get sick now than any other time: I can sit by the ocean for hours and need nothing more.
He seemed confused as to how I could have this whole island at my disposal and yet my whole joy remains sitting still under the watchful eye of the Pacific and I explained it as a very full resting, something I rarely do at home.

When every wave says "Heal' what else would you seek? Ideas for belts and jewelry are flooding into my mind at record speeds, and we bought great pencils and paper to capture them on - I don't feel like these things would have come without profound rest. I was creatively exhausted and scared when we left Los Angeles and now I am reawakening.

You needn't see any more than these pictures to understand why: our cottage and its surroundings are a miracle. The mosquitos, on the other hand.....well, let's just say they are keeping me grounded and realistic, otherwise we might just pack our bags and live here.
