Only In My Mind by Barb Montanye Kleeman


Standing alone, the waves wash the sand from beneath my feet.As the seagulls glide through the sky, I take a deep breath and my lungs fill with the fresh salt air. Closing my eyes, listening to the sound of the surf hitting against the shore a peacefulness fills my soul. Walking along the beach I am content in the quiet hush of the early morning.
Nowhere else on earth do I feel so warm and safe as near the waters edge.
Sitting down on the cool, damp sand I am happy to just be alive. All thoughts and concerns seem to wash away with each crashing wave.
I close my eyes and relive this moment over and over again in my mind, hundreds of miles away from the water. Taking a deep breath I return to the present and go about my day feeling refreshed.
