hearts & diamonds

I found a beach & it's an easy walk from my house / seaweed / the green of the golf course / flotsam / beauty / Atlantic barnacles / awaiting spring / house boat / still like glass
We need the tonic of wildness ... At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature. Henry David Thoreau
I know I need the tonic of the wilderness, of the ocean, of nature. The top two must-have's on my list of criteria for my new home were an easy walk to the ocean and an easy walk into nature - I have both in spades here in lovely Lunenburg. Spades & hearts & diamonds galore !
Recently I've discovered yet a third and completely unexpected must have. Perfect, sweet, and dear, still secret - a want so deep & intense I feel ill with longing for it. We're hoping, wishing & praying for this want to come true and if it does ... I will feel overcome with happiness, relief and enormous gratitude.
