Flows of Tide – and Life – Constant yet Chaotic

Variety is great but we all need some form of consistency in our lives to stay sane and healthy.

When I feel my life has become too chaotic, I try to make it to a lake or sea shore. Watching the ebb and flow of the tide is one of the best ways to relax and be reassured that the rhythms of life remain constant

I discovered this – I believe – unpublished post in my drafts. It reminds me I haven’t been to the lake (Erie) for over a year. Unbelievable. It’s been even longer since I’ve seen the ocean from my favorite spots in New England. 

Missing viewing the water in person, being lulled into relaxation by its lapping against the sand’s surface. But cherishing memories . . . for the moment.

Iconic Lamps of Earlier Days

On this dark, dreary terrentially rainy day in May, thought I’d feature this thrift shop find.

I’m not certain of its origin, but this light reminds me of the roaring twenties – that century-old decade, when fringed almost mini skirts, short hair and bangs became the norm.

When I was a boy I used to think that strong meant having big muscles, great physical power; but the longer I live, the more I realize that real strength has much more to do with what is not seen. Real strength has to do with helping others. – Fred Rogers
