Throwback Thursdays...Express Yourself


As much as I love being back in Texas and with my family, I do miss the beach. Every day there was something different to see.

On Mondays, there were leftover sandcastles and sculptures from the weekend.  Always it was fun searching for seashells.

I loved coming upon the beach version of texting.  

sand messages at Delray Beach

 

We met a fellow beach walker who comes out when he can on weekends and draws hearts and smiley faces in the sand to honor his young sister who had recently passed away...




Humans have a need to communicate with others and express what they feel whether it’s via voice, text, writing, music, photos, social media, or picking up a stick and using the beach as your tablet.



Find yourself and express yourself in your own particular way. Express your love openly.   Miguel Angel Ruiz

Be free and express yourself. Do what comes naturally.  Cee Lo Green

Kathy it is easy to see why you would miss that, but it is nice being close to family.

I truly believe that we humans have a need to communicate with each other... I recently had to retire due to health issues and I can't begin to tell you how much I miss all the social aspects of being in the real estate business... I will not stop writing in Active Rain because I love staying close to everyone else... learning what they are up to and sharing what I am up to... I loved this post

Hi Kathy Streib - Using the sand on the beach to communicate and create art is always a wonderful find as you stroll through the sand. Happy Thursday!

Hi Wayne Martin we were lucky to have had so much time in Fl and on the beaches.  When we came back into town, we always headed to the beach. 

Nina Hollander, Broker what wonderful quotes, especially about the crayons.

Brian England I am more of a beach person than mountains. And when I'm there I want to hear the ocean and birds and the sounds of the beach...no music. 

Sham Reddy CRS I agree. We speak but do we truly express ourselves.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I love that quote as well. And I remember the strong winds along the beach!!! It can be like walking through a sandblaster. 

Roy Kelley I missed the architecture we have here. I was never fond of the stucco houses in South Florida.

Joan Cox we were very fortunate. The beach was maybe 10 minutes or less away. Besides the walks in the morning, I loved taking a late afternoon drive there before dinner. 

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty wasn't that a sweet gesture. I could tell in speaking with him that he was a kind and thoughtful person.

Will Hamm If I'd let myself I would have spent hours walking along the beach looking for shells.

George Souto you've got that right. And after having gone through 2020, I'm thankful that we were here in Houston, with family. 

Beth and Richard Witt I am very sorry that you had to retire and hope that you're taking care of yourself. I am retired but am here to keep learning and because of the community. I'm so happy that you are still blogging.

HI Sheri Sperry - MCNE® my favorite was after a storm. It was fun to see Mother Nature's art that was left on the beach.

Like you say Kathy the wind at the beach can sandblast you if you're not paying attention. The closest we lived was 2nd house from the beach. Future moves kept us close and now at about 2 miles I believe we found the perfect distance with several small increments along that path.

In fall and winter our 3 1/2 miles of beach is deserted except for weekends. The driftwood and rocky beach are inadequate for long term messages. The tide is natures eraser Kathy...

Kathy Streib  I fully understand your feeling, we lived in Marina Del Rey 500 yards from the beach for ten year... and seldom but when I took advantage of it I loved it... now it has been 7  plus years living 6 miles from the beach and I do miss it just like you, needless to say it would be easier for me than you to go to the beach...Endre

Learning about that beach goer drawing happy faces, etc. in the sand, in honor of his little sister, is very heartwarming, Kathy.

Yes, I do love the old fashioned ways. Wonder what it would be like now if they never invented texting and smartphones
