Whether shopping in New Hope, PA, or trolling the beaches of NJ, or just taking a neighborhood stroll, the thing to remember is to enjoy the moment.  I’ve been so wrapped up in keeping up, that I wasn’t enjoying what I was doing, reading, posting, etc.  I’m here when I’m here.  I’ve figured out that ‘breathing’ is essential to living in the moment.  I’m not ignoring you. I SWEAR.  I’ll get there when I get there, and when I do I will ‘like’, no I will LOVE you, but til then I’ll take the road less traveled and breathe.

And sometimes it simply means love.

Look closely.  Jeff wrote my name in the sand.


L-o-v-e 🙂

Jeff and I took a bike ride to Rita’s Water Ice near the beach tonight.  Just what I need to negate the bike ride – a mango and vanilla, soft ice cream gelati.  It could be worse,  I suppose.  We could have driven there.  I still didn’t have a photo for Jake’s “Door” challenge, so I suggested that we stop by St. Thomas’ Church a few blocks away to check out the front door there.  It’s not elaborate, nor does it have the character that comes with age, but it’s a simple door. One that leads to many things for many people. Solace for some, relief or comfort for others.   A little bit of stained glass, plain, yet, welcoming.  Beckoning…
