I can't count how many times I have stood on this cliff wondering WHAT I should do with my life. Do you know that feeling? I come here to ask the ocean. Last year, the ocean told me it was time to get divorced. This spring, when I asked, I was eating a dark chocolate dipped apricot. The ocean told me to dye my hair that shade (the chocolate, not the apricot!). So, what's next, oh great watery guru?

Right now, I am sitting in an alleyway next to an awesome bakery. The sun is slinking away and my fingers are getting chilly. I will NOT finish that slice of German chocolate cake and I SHOULD head back to the hotel and get to work on that book since I have to go home tomorrow...

On a less existential tangent, you all will be thrilled to know that I just spent a small fortune on some very (in my opinion) artsy clothes! One jacket even has some Zentangle-ish embroidery on the back! I am trying... Peeling myself off the wall and attempting to stand out... A bit. :-)


  1. With scenery like that, I can see why you go there for answers and why you receive them.

  2. Ok Sandy, you left me wondering....what did the ocean say this time? (Isn't the ocean wonderful?) And, how about a picture of you in that awesome tangly jacket?

  3. Good for you Sandy...although you stand apart from the crowd even without a new sounds gorgeous!

  4. Everyone needs to talk to the universe, and to send their hopes and desires out and then let the universe guide them.
    I can't think of a better place to do it than Ogunquit! Love that town. Love the ocean side walkway. Haven't been there for years. Maybe it is time for my sabbatical.

  5. the visit to the ocean is meant to renew your spirits & mind so you can DO your work... I say, "Go with the FLOW." (mind you, the the flow of the ocean, as I'm sure it's pretty chilly at this time in the year) but let the extra stuff FLOW right out of your mind.

  6. Sounds like you need more vacation time and more self-indulgence (me too!)'s good for you!
