A Walk on the Beach

A Walk on the Beach

simonelipscombA little over a year has passed since I moved home to the Gulf Coast. There have been no doubts regarding the move. Not one. Within a few minutes drive I can be on the beach, communing with big water….big salt water. My heart expands to meet the horizon. How I love this place!

Aren’t we lucky? Don’t you feel blessed to commune with nature!

“Where shall you seek beauty, and how shall you find her unless she herself be your way and your guide? And how shall you speak of her except she be the weaver of your speech? Beauty is not a need but an ecstasy. It is not a mouth thirsting nor an empty hand stretched forth, But rather a heart enflamed and a soul enchanted. Beauty is life when life unveils her holy face. But you are life and you are the veil. Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror. But you are eternity and you are the mirror.” Kahlil Gabran

  1. My wife and I have a house at Ft. Morgan but we live in Birmingham. We rent the Ft. Morgan house most of the time but we do get several weeks a year down on the coast. I agree with you, the Gulf Coast, particularly the Alabama Gulf Coast is a special place indeed. There are few places where I feel as much at home. Looking forward to our next time there.
