Finding my happy place is never hard, but I just need time to get there, even if it is only in my mind. Anywhere in nature will do, the mountains, the beach, trails along a lake, a garden or some other beautiful place. Today I highlight one of my favorites, the beautiful white sand beaches on the West Coast of Florida.
The wooden bridge creaks under my sandaled feet.
Weathered and aged, I remember when it was new.
I step out of my sandals and onto the sand,
walking towards the turquoise waters.
Sea grasses and sea oats line the path of pure white,
as if it were a passageway to another world.
A gentle breeze lifts up dragonflies flying in the wind.
The air is salty on my lips, the sand is soft powder on my feet.
I dip my toes into the gently lapping waves.
It transports me to a place of calm; I finally start to breathe.
