Sand - the gift of summer

There is something so perfect about time on the beach

The sand in its capacity to enter every nook and crevice

Between my toes, up my togs and despite my efforts through too many pages of my book

Sand demands I stay present

Present to my experience

Present to my kids

In their joy and exploration

As we build sand castles

Swim in the surf

And soak up the sunshine

Sand ensures, there is no place for mobile phones, laptops and other distractors from life

Give yourself the gift of summer

Spend time on the beach

In present moment experience

With self

With nature

And with those that matter to you most
