Day 233: Weekend at the Beach

Day 233: Weekend at the Beach

“Total physical and mental inertia are highly agreeable, much more so than we allow ourselves to imagine. A beach not only permits such inertia but enforces it, thus neatly eliminating all problems of guilt. It is now the only place in our overly active world that does.”  -John Kenneth Galbraith

I have finally met the full weight of my fatigue and I am so happy to have a long weekend at a beach house to rest. I need to replace my exhaustion with inertia. I need to see what is behind all the thinking and writing and talking I do.  I want to dive deep into stillness and quiet.

The beach has always been one of my favorite places to reach such a state of relaxation and rest. Away from the busy-ness of the city, standing on the long stretches of sand, looking out at the water that extends for miles past the horizon, I can finally come to that place of stillness I usually can only achieve in my mediations.

Being on the beach puts it all in perspective. The endless crashing waves, the singular blue-grey color of the ocean, and the millions of grains of sand at my feet remind me how small I am, how, in the scheme of things all of my worries and troubles are really not that bad after all.

So here I am, at my haven with my favorite people in the world. This weekend I shall surround myself in the stillness and the quiet grandeur of the Oregon coast, and find the peace I have been craving.
