It’s a cloudy morning here at the beach. Getting ready for the telecommute day, Scuba Man and I are at opposite ends of the dining room table with four computers between us. We are geeks.
It rained here over night but it did nothing to cool it off. This weekend, the weather was too hot and humid to even want to be outside. It didn’t feel that much better after the sun went down. It was not a weekend to actually hang out on the beach.
But just being here, being able to see and hear the ocean, soothes the soul. I’m not sure what it is about the ocean that attracts me. Why, no matter what mood I’m in, the ocean can make me happy, make me feel at peace.
Is it the sheer power of the water? Is it the sheer continuity? The knowing that it will always be there, with the tides coming in and going out?
What is it that makes the ocean attract so many people?
