(this was on the way to surprise Jim in Pacific Grove)
a couple photos?! Geesh! I totally thought I had taken more! Oh well...that alone should tell you how much FUN we both had. It was marvelous to reconnect and fall in love all over again!!! This trip was so needed. Along the way on this trip I have rekindled my love for books, I have now read through 3 books. I know...I know...but you see I had given up the art of reading a fine book. I had fallen deep into the dark abyss of not finding fun in life. That has changed. If I can just say, that I think I have found the silver lining in my gray cloud.
This new diagnose of cancer has made me STOP dead (excuse the pun) in my tracks and grab hold of life once more and shake it up! No longer will I mope through a day...NOT I! Now I hold my head high and take on the day. I still work at my crappy job but boy oh boy! What a difference of indifference makes and a killer smile doesn't hinder anything either.
People come up to me now and say things like, "Robyn have you done something different to your hair or your make-up looks stunning!" WHAT?! No, nothing has changed...it's called a mega-watt smile. Ahhh, but I don't tell them. I just beam on.
Even when Jim and I were in Pacific Grove, people were drawn to us. Happy as we both were, people wanted to share and bathe in that positive energy. We had people take our photos while we were reading books on a bench on the beach. We had hot, steaming coffees and I had my legs thrown over Jim's while wearing hoodies.
While waiting for the sun to set! Hunkered down for a good read with the ocean swirling around us. I suppose people thought that an oddity. We did that everyday we were there. We were there right after lunch each day and then we would wait to see the sun set. Each one was so glorious to witness. Being by the ocean is truly where I am to be. For me to be truly happiest I need to be by the ocean. I feel more relaxed and my soul feels full!
(isn't it just breath taking...)
P.S. I have missed everyone so much...
With much love,
