I don’t know why the coast has such an effect on me, but I am glad that it does. I walked along the beach and watched the sun set, and I felt at peace, for the first time in days. It was a beautiful day.
As I drove home, I felt the tensions build again. I began to worry about facing tomorrow, and the next day; I began to think about people, and opinions, and emotions.
But perhaps it will be ok after all. For a couple of hours, my head was clear… and this gives me hope. If I could find this serenity today, then I will find it on other days. And perhaps there will be a time soon that I don’t have to run quite so far to find it.
