Saturday Morning

I sat on my patio, wrapped in a blanket…when I noticed that my room was not on the ground floor but on the subfloor beneath, making it closer to the edge where the beach began…I turned on the radio and Nina Simone was singing I Put a Spell on You.  The seals were silent, and I could hear the waves in the distance, winter on the West Coast. I sank into bed and slept heavily.

The Blue…

Friends go Tuna fishing off the coast of Santa Cruz.  They do catch fish.  And so much more.  Don’t worry if you don’t like fish or fishing.  You’ll find this clip beautiful and mesmerizing.  Hang in there beyond 1.5 minutes when it all begins.  Thank you Rob Firchau at The Hammock Papers for another terrific share.  His blog is a frequent stop, and you’ll soon see why…
