sunday at the beach

Graham and I wandered through Nonesuch Books today – scouted out a few good reads (here are some great book recommendations from NPR) – ┬áthen made our way down to Higgins Beach to watch the waves roll in and the surfers all bundled up in their hooded wetsuits:

It was a brisk, windy, gorgeous day and all the surfers we crossed paths with said it was really warm. (!) I’m on-call for my first Maine birth so I was especially appreciative of Higgins today – of having such a spectacular place be so close, allowing me to be within a few minutes of where I need to be should that call ring in. And what better place to reflect on bringing a new life into the world?

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend too!

“Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don’t even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child – our own two eyes.” ┬áThich Nhat Hanh

Wishing you a pensive, productive, and positive rest of the week.
