Just a cool serenity,
to calm the heat (hot flashes you know),
to soothe the anxiety (generated by the mystery of death),
to lighten the burden of work (playing creates joy),
to contribute to the daydream (maybe I'll move by the sea one day)
Happiness in a picture

Anne - your enthusiasm makes me so happy! We truly have been looking into possibilities for a move up north (prettiest country on God's green earth next to Iceland) but are trying to weigh the employment possibilities with the food bill :-D How the heck did you all do it? Sell first, then buy? Or buy first and then sell? I'm so confused.

Autumn Storm said...

That is a lovely picture. I find blues and greens very soothing. Serenity. Exactly. Glad you are able to be in this happy place.

A belated Rabbit, rabbit to you:)

What a lovely picture, it evokes a hopeful feeling. There's something so stress-relieving about the ocean.

Welcome home, peace be with you.

As always your words and photo are perfect.
I predict that you and I will be neighbors...me in the city, you in a sumarbustad in the country...in Iceland...and we will both be living by the sea.
