After weeks of college graduation celebrations, in between working, and general home maintenance, I get this moment on the sand.

Not often seen... The backside of my Dream Home from Somethings Gotta Give with Jack Nicholson & Dianne Keaton.

Batik Beach Blankets, selected areas of the cloth are blocked out by brushing or drawing hot wax over them, and the cloth is then dyed. History, Craft, Artistry and a seasonal favorite.

Hearing the clacking of sails hitting the masts of beached sunfish and hobiecats create the perfectly timed melody of the lake-shore. In between lifeguard whistles, and soda cans popping, I can see seagulls become master divers once they plunge under the surface to get their lunch. And here I stand. 

Clink, Clank, clang

Lighting the night, The openings were hand carved one by one, in a meticulous manner. When lit, the effect is magical, dramatic and special. Perfect for a night on the sand & available in my own the look tab.

Witnessing the beach routine for some time now, I too find my place in the melody. Every hour or so I turn over on my sun-bleached blanket, creating the sound of grinding sand and add my own percussion— I exhale in addition to the tune of flipping the pages of a magazine page.

Here, on the white sand beach of Lake Michigan, the season welcomes me to join in on the fun. And I hope your summer is just as inviting.
