Many treasures lie under the sea, but will Alistar find the one that will make ‘The Perfect Birthday Present’ for his mom? Join this adventurous little sea star and his best buddy Barnaby (a blob fish) as they travel through the beautiful deep blue sea, meeting many other creatures of the deep. When the two friends finally stumble upon the perfect present, Alistar needs to make a difficult decision, which only he can make. When he does, the little sea star learns that there are times when it is not the present that is important, but the thought behind it.

For Linda Crowley, the first day of the year had always been set aside to work on new, positive beginnings and 1970 was no different. Her husband and children were by all accounts healthy and no one even considered the terrible thought that tragedy would strike before the day was over, and life as she had known it was gone.

The Bride Has Arrived…

…and wedding week has officially begun! The house and yard are sparkling, my yoga room has now become the wedding room, and we await the arrival of the groom and maid of honor on Wednesday along with friends of theirs who will be joining us for the fourth. On Saturday the 5th, 75 more people arrive and move into the cottages and hotel rooms here on East Sandwich Beach. It’s a 7 day wedding from the 5th thru the 12th. The actual ceremony is on Wednesday July 9th at a gorgeous tent venue right on the ocean. The bride and groom have elected not to go away. They wanted to get married in the middle of the week so they could have a great time with their friends and family.

My oldest daughter is the bride, my younger one is the maid of honor, and I couldn’t be more excited for these two weeks to happen. Of course, all the fun comes with a good amount of stress, as any wedding would. My bride daughter is very calm today. In fact, she helped me stay calm. She decided she is going to spend this gorgeous day on the beach and relax before everyone arrives. I’m going to clean the basement. In our own way we are going to manage our stress.

Time alone in your head, whether sitting on a beach or tackling a huge project, where thoughts can drift like a boat floating down a river, has a meditative effect on the brain. I can almost feel the rubber bands relax as my brain aimlessly wanders, singing along to the local radio station as I work.

And so, as another beautiful cape day goes by, I take a lesson from the bride, and…I have written.
