Why is writing in the sand so darn fun? I’ll tell you why. The beach is miles and miles of blank canvas yearning to be written on. Who can resist poking their finger in the sand and sketching out something that inspires them? Not me!
Even if it’s only there for a fleeting moment- Even if nobody else sees it- It makes us feel good to leave our mark on the world.
I live at the beach, so any given day I can go out and read the thoughts of strangers. Some of them are to the point- “Ray loves Kelly” and some are confusing- “b2” (?)
Yesterday, while walking on the beach scouting for interesting writings/drawings, I spotted Hailie scribbling in the sand while Mom and Dad proudly watched nearby.
Notice she is writing her words upside down.
Great sense of humor Hailie!
Hailie sketched out individual letters in the sand. Dad photographs each them and Mom will frame and hang them on the wall, spelling out the names of their family- one framed letter at a time. Great idea Mom!
Walking a little further, I stopped to watch Meme drawing a fish-tail in the sand. I watched the fish-tail become a beautiful mermaid. And she was drawing the entire thing upside down. How does she do that?! Meme is considering attending an Art Institute near her home after graduation. I should say so Meme.
