a choice... a journey not a destination... different things to different people... better than sorrow

Well, I had this grand idea to try my hand at doing a watercolor or collage of a beach for IMT's challenge from last Thursday. Ah, the best laid plans of mice and men... So I give you photos instead. At some point here I will pick up a paint brush again.
For me the beach embodies loveliness but it is fraught with dangers like donning a bathing suit. I'm also a little leery of encountering sea creatures but I manage to enjoy the water any way. Fight your fears and all that. I think my next visit to a beach will be nicer even though I still don't want to be seen in a swimsuit. I'm finding that I don't get as hot as I used to and I enjoy walking more and more. Now all I need to do is get protective gear for my camera so I don't have to worry about all that sand getting into it. I did love taking pictures of the sand and waves.
It stinks when you just have the short weekend to cram life into but it's best to enjoy what you can. This past weekend was a little more organizing, dinner with Mom and my friend Renee, along with a wee bit of shopping, and then on to working on a project plan for deploying software at the office. Oh, and Rebecca stopped by to pick up more clothes that no longer fit me (whoopee!). It was a nice weekend all in all but of course many things were left undone but what's life without some challenges. Maybe I will manage to do the next IMT challenge sooner than the night before the next challenge. ;-)
By day I work with computer software at a law firm and by weekend I'm exploring my creative side. You know, mixed in with all the other stuff you have to do on the weekend like the laundry. I love reading blogs and seeing all the beautiful artwork. I love how encouraging and friendly the community is. Please feel free to leave a comment even if it is just to say hi.
