Every Little Thing….

….is gonna be alright.  Sometimes my dreams of the night before put me into a fretful waking up feeling…has that ever happened to you?  So watching God’s beautiful ocean and listening to the sounds of the waves drowning out all other things is just the prescription.  Listen, pray, breathe, relax…every little thing is gonna be alright.  🙂  Slainte, Lisa

Beach Plus Ireland Equals Perfect

Inch Beach is one of the most relaxing places I have visited in Ireland.  Wide, flat, firm sand that seems to stretch on forever (where an “inch” is more like 3 miles).  Scenic hills surrounding you.  The luring beauty of the Dingle Peninsula.  Ahhh….imagination kicks in, I’m there, I’m breathing in the crisp fall air, the water soothes me yet again,  the wind is blowing all thoughts from my mind, the sand beneath my toes feels wonderful.  🙂  Take a 5 minute imagination vacation right now; pick your favorite spot in the world, close your eyes, be there!  Slainte, Lisa

Somewhere Over the Rainbow


Somewhere, this beach, these chairs are waiting…

Waiting for work-weary bodies to sink down into them

Waiting for the island breezes to blow

Waiting for the surf to tickle their legs and wash away the weight

Waiting, peacefully with no worries


Have a blessed weekend.  Slainte, Lisa


Fishing for Diamonds


When I was a little girl and when the sun hit the water just right, I thought there were diamonds out there in the surf.  And if I just could get there quick enough and catch one, it would stay glittery and beautiful in my hand.  But alas, those diamonds seemed to be of the stuff of leprechaun gold and fairy dust, and I was never quite fast enough to fish one out.  I sure had fun trying, though.  🙂  If you’re by the sea today, catch a diamond for me, and if you’re not, imagine yourself picking up one triumphantly in your hand for all to see.  It will make you smile and that’s a good thing.  Slainte, Lisa

A Church with Sand on the Floor

I don’t know about you, but this is about perfect.  A beautiful white wooden church with sand on the floor, blue ocean right outside its windows, sea breezes blowing through…the best of God’s air conditioning.  Let’s go…OK?  🙂  Slainte, Lisa


The view just a few steps away...
