Beach Walking, KI, SC
"The cure for anything is salt water -- sweat, tears, or the sea". -Isak Dinesen
When you think about it, salt water really is a timeless panacea. There’s really nothing to compare to an honest day’s work or workout where you are making a difference and contributing value to society or your health. I’ve often remarked that bailing hay in the middle of a Midwestern summer was the most honest, invigorating, hot and sweaty work that I accomplished at a minimum wage during my lifetime.
Tears of joy or grief almost always provide both the body and soul with an emotional release that ultimately leaves mankind with the fortitude to go on with life. And a first light sunrise walk along a deserted sandy beach will cure even the most melancholy or broken spirit as the foaming waves break ceaselessly over your bare feet.
