I started this one ages ago, in the depth of winter, when spring was only a memory or something to look forward to.

To me she represented that hope, that faith, that spring eventually would come,  and it did. Now it is summer and she is finally done.  She, like Spring, is magic. She is rebirth. She is hope.  Sometimes we have to wait a little longer for something but it’s always worth the wait.  She is  a warrior who was  able to withstand those cold months, knowing that she had something amazing ahead of her.  It is not always easy to find that strength. But we must. We must.

A place to think. A place to be alone.

I always loved the water. The beach.

People always ask if I miss the mountains.

Never.

The ocean. I miss the ocean.

The sound, the smell, the sand,

always so cold, just beneath the surface.

I used to love to sit  on an old drift-wood log and plunge my bare feet down into the sand and  stare at the waves.

Back and forth.

Back and forth.

For hours.

Sometimes I look at a dip or a valley in the landscape here in Alberta and I think ” the ocean should be right there, just beyond that point”.

But it’s not there.

The river is beautiful but it is not the ocean.

The ocean was my secret garden, where I would go and think and be alone.  It healed me. It healed my heart. It cleared my head.

‘Water  heals’,  they say.

Now.

Now, I have really long baths.
