We Found The Magic

A warm breeze blew as we walked the local beach and watched dolphins frolic with bleached haired surf rats. The children ran ahead only stopping to collect shells or greet passing dogs.

We happend upon a little sand cliff, you know those ones that crumble as you approach the lip? They we stayed, playing until sand encroached on bum cracks* and salt water formed a crust on our skin.

We've found the magic. It's in the water, in the air and in the spring breeze.

See ya Winter.


It's exactly one year ago that I wrote this post about Post Natal Depression. I just re-read every single comment and it reminded me of how much I adore bloggers and blogging. Good times, bad times, we're all here.
