living on location

I’m settling in nicely to my new location. My sewing studio is arranged and costume production is underway. There is a lot of work to be done, but living on a country club resort is a good incentive for proper time management. Yes indeed, I think the next three months will be just fine.


I sit on the end of the marina, my back against wooden pilings. The sun warms my skin, through a haze of clouds overhead. I am surrounded by lapping, splashing drips of water against the hull of boats in the harbor and the percussive cling clang of metal pulleys on tall masts. Although the breeze is gentle, a whirling whistle can be heard between the boats. Such is the melody of the marina. Blue paint, weathered wood, white canvas and reflected shimmers of light on the water. I’m happy to find that my wifi works here. It’s such a peaceful spot, a place to recharge my spirit.

Your post was very picturesque, in word and image. You make me feel like we're there on the dock watching the sun set.

Thanks for sharing The Good Life with us!

Yay, what a great surprise! Wireless dockside internet? I could go for some of that right about now.

We're soon to hang out with you at this very favorite spot.

Let the count down of days begin!

How's the music of the ship masts now? More endearing like a call to prayer?

Miss hearing from you.

Seeing you in Florida was so rewarding. There you were in a tropical sarong passing out pinapples.... looking like a post card or an ad to come enjoy The Good Life.

You, as beautiful as the beach. As welcoming as the warmth. As comfortable to be with as the lounge chair overlooking the water. As relaxing as the hot tub.

Just thinking about our time together... makes my heart shine with maternal happiness!
