the book of AWESOME

So maybe i’m a little behind the times, whatever. I picked up the first copy of the book of AWESOME today, coincidentally this is the day that book 2 was released. I found out via twitter. The book definately made me smile often, and ‘lol’. One thing I found jarring about the book was that…

Common theme

The love of the sea – It is said that in order to truly love something you must also fear it. Sitting on a stick of driftwood on the pebbled beach this evening, I realized that I was, again, in love with the sea. The thunderous wonder that claims so many lives yet cures much…

As pretty as a song

The most solid advice . . . for a writer is this, I think: Try to learn to breathe deeply, really to taste food when you eat, and when you sleep, really to sleep. Try as much as possible to be wholly alive, with all your might, and when you laugh, laugh like hell, and…

They see me rollin’

Aaron and I went to the beach today to get some more rounded rocks. This time however, we just used them to make a pathway to our door, along with some solar lights. And also, our mode of transportation changed. Our landlords were kind enough to hand over the keys to their Yamaha Rhino side-by-side.…

Try getting that song out of your head now! (I’m sorry.) Anyway, the point of that was to say that I feel extra feminine today, my friend Jess and I went to the salon and got our hair done. First time in a longgg time since I did that. I don’t recall ever going with…

Easter rocks

A little project that Aaron and I completed last night. Again, using beach rocks. There’s so many things you could make by just reusing materials that you can find outdoors. They’re cute, they would make a nice gift, and they help you bond with the person you’re making them with. Materials required: Beach stones, rounded/egg…

Collector

I’ve spent 80% of my summer waking hours at the beach. This has caused me to become somewhat of a collector/hoarder of beach material. Aaron and I ventured out to the stretch of beach (mostly small-medium sized pebbles, no sand) around Port Harmon, today. We were scouting for round and egg-shaped rocks. We painted the…
