Self-Portrait

Our local beach is about 2 miles from the house. I feel so fortunate to live so close to the sea and shall choose to go down there more often.

Beach walks are solitary affairs, I think. Some 10 years ago, after I broke up with a boy friend, I spent hours on beaches, walking, walking, walking, trying to make sense of the knot I felt inside. I think it was then I started to get into rocks, because I had my head hung low and looked at the ground so much. Looking at rocks, pebbles, drift wood.
