There is only one day left, always starting over:
it is given to us at dawn and taken away from us at dusk.
One day, while you’re out and about simply minding you’re own business…
(pigeon waddling on the beach / Rosemary Beach / Julie Cook / 2017)
As you’re merely caught up in the day to day business of living life while
pecking out an existence…
(a flock of plovers / Rosemary beach / Julie Cook / 2017)
Yet without hardly noticing, life begins to grow a bit dark as things
just seem to grow harder and harder…
(sparrow / Rosemary Beach / Julie Cook / 2017)
Suddenly one day, and very much out of the blue, you find that you’ve face planted…
falling helplessly into the sands of life…
and you realize you’ve all but given up the ghost…
(a dead loon / Rosemary Beach / Julie Cook / 2017)
The situation, having grown dire, hinges on just a matter of time…
For it is now or never…
Either you get up and get going, flying the coop….
or you succumb to the shifting sands…
(seagull /Rosemary Beach / Julie Cook / 2017)
And yet it is within the change in scenery…
that you slowly and most assuredly begin to find the solace,
along with the long sought healing,
all within the rhythmic motion of the tide…
(brown pelican / Rosemary Beach / Julie Cook / 2017)
and finding your happy place…
you begin to feel a bit more like your old self…
(yours truly / happy in the chilly gulf surf / Rosemary Beach / Julie Cook / 2017)
He heals the brokenhearted
and binds up their wounds.

Oh I’m so glad you’ve gotten away to the beach. It is definitely a good place to unwind and start healing. En;joy! Enjoy! Enjoy! Love, N 🙂 ❤
Like the beach! Hard to get there from the other side of DC, but there are always the mountains. In any event, it is a change of scenery.
and it is the need for the change that is usually my saving grace—and I too love the mountains Tom!!!
Beautiful post Julie and I so agree on the healing powers of the beach! Love the bird shots too, I’m such a feathered creature fan, even of pigeons. 😉
thank you Tricia
