Something to SEA: Rainy Day Clicks for 6/10/2016

Happy Saturday, friends! It’s a kick back, read a book outside or take a walk on the beach until the thunderstorms come kind of day. The highlight of my week was going on the Tilt-a-Whirl ride at our local boardwalk with my 5-year-old nephew, who graduated from one of his two preschools yesterday. The two minutes or so spent on that ride, laughing with H, holding his hand and just enjoying the moment erased the week’s stress and pain, even if only for a short time. I’m finding that I need to go back and look at everything I’ve written, and at all of the quote photos I’ve created, and listen to my own advice. Still “sea”king my soul, but I feel like I’m in limbo with my path being obscured by thick fog and uncertainty. A beach walk is needed, and that’s where I’m headed, even if it’s only to clear my head for a short while.

I hope you’ll find something to inspire you in one of the clicks below.
