Intricate statues of Japanese citizens doing their work.
If you look at the glass image in a certain way, you are able to see what the village looked like in its thriving years.
After dinner, we went for a walk on the beach. I think this is what it's all about. Being with my husband who loves me very much and my sister and brother-in-law. It was good to walk with her and talk. We talked about our sister and our feelings. We hugged, we cried. We have the same feelings about life and we are trying to get through it. With everything that had been going on in our lives, we were able to talk about our children and our hopes for the future. I am so proud of her and what she continues to do in her life. She is my special little sister and I love her so.
One last look before we got ready to go home. So wonderous... I think in our next lifetime, we will come back living near the ocean :).

Did not make it to the beach this last weekend, but that's ok, because my honey was home. I love him so.
I was telling my sister that one of the reasons I want to go see her is because I want to face the ocean and just "scream!" Then I think I'll feel better :)! Seriously, I think I need to do just that. Then I'll cry...
Life. So painful.
I'll be ok.

Talked to my mom. She sounds good. She found out that a good friend of hers and my dad passed away yesterday. Too much sadness.
Talked to my little sister who lives near the beach and asked if I could come visit her this weekend. My honey is working away again and I need to go somewhere to meditate and regenerate.
When I first met my husband, he used to sit in a quiet way and meditate. I admired that in him because he was gentle and patient. When he was done, it seemed like he could accomplish anything he put his mind to. I need to do this. I feel unorganized, tired, and sad most of the time.
My little sister's home is so near the ocean that you can just walk about ten steps and you are there. It's beautiful and calm. I think it will help.
Thank you, Lord for family and friends. . .

Went up to the high desert to help my mom and while I was there the smoke was so heavy that even with the air conditioner on we could still smell it in the house. It literally looked like a fire storm was rolling down the mountain. Upon arriving home, I stepped outside to take this picture. You can see the dense cloud of smoke up in the sky. I live 45 minutes from my mom's house and the smoke had traveled this far. It was kind of eerie. By the way, it was about 7:00 - still daylight.

I'm tired. We are in our 5th week of school and we are still moving forward at a fast pace. I definitely need a day off just to relax and veg. I want to sit by the beach and do absolutely nothing == just sit. Then I'll get up, walk on the sand, have a little dinner, and come back and sit and watch the sun set. Then I'll sleep. I need to sleep and not dream anymore. Not for a while anyway.
Labor Day weekend is around the corner. I'm glad. Have a good Thursday and Friday everyone.
