The last few days have been lovely.
refurbishing and showing some love to an old surfboard
(Eventually I will buy my own, something a little nicer and more fitting, but the only thing we’ve had to actually purchase is a bottle of mineral spirits, pending.)
driving in the sunshine with the top down
getting salt water in my mouth and eyes and ears
having time to read
making art (I’ve made stickers; I will share.)
coconut coffee, shampoo, surf wax
cozy late night conversations
I’ve had good energy,
the sun and the Atlantic.
Last night, Timothy stopped by my apartment on his way home, to tell me about his day (excitedly, animated) and to say goodnight.
This morning, one of the older women at work said I was a ray of light; she hugged me and kissed my forehead.
This afternoon, I finally caught a small wave and came up from the surf (with sand in my ears) to the cheering of two men I am so happy to have in my life.
Thanks for stopping by. My name is Naomi, and this space is made of girldust. This blog is a picture of my comfortably scattered life on the coast of Maine. I'm trying to be a slightly better version of myself every day. I like old houses, reading, the ocean, ghost stories, and museums. You can learn a little bit more about me here.
