As I'm writing this, we are on vacation in the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Duck, specifically.Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do byWallace J. Nichols. Our backyard view is the Curritick Sound and water as far as the eye can see. In fact, on our dock this very instant, I have a hunting osprey who is lying in wait atop a post, ready to swoop down on any fish nearby to bring home to his or her little one in the nest two doors down. All of this puts 3 ospreys in easy view, adding both a show and symphony from their squawks of these magnificent birds.
Speaking of which...it's calling. The water. The writing can patiently wait.

During our week in Duck, we distracted and #blueminded a lot:
Walk downstairs to paddleboarding
Watching neighbors & their fishing mornings
Biking and board walking
Boating and dolphin watching
Dining on the gifts of the sea
I'm ready to go back.
