I’ve found myself being extremely sentimental. Sentimental for the farm. Sentimental about my move to LA and the friends I’ve made thus far. Sentimental about old relationships…I could go on.
I went to the beach yesterday to just reflect on my life, meditate, and think about all the goals I have. The beach has always held a special place in my heart. I would run away there quite frequently when I lived in Washington. Difference is that was a 3-4 hour drive whereas here it’s a 20 minute trip tops. I sat in the sand staring at the ocean, listening to Billie Eilish and taking photos. Then wandered the Santa Monica Pier people watching. It was so beautiful. I found myself getting sentimental again about nature and humans and inhabiting this universe. Sometimes it feels as if this world is so screwed up. Yesterday I felt positive that we are all doing our best and things will be okay. A privileged point of view I know.
I have a lot of thoughts floating around in my head. Ones that I would mention here, but I’m on borrowed computer time (I decided to walk to a small coffee shop where there is only 30 minutes of free internet) but I’m trying to do a monthly check in from here on out.
If anyone has any ideas for writing prompts, I’m taking suggestions. I feel a bit blocked and would really like to write more while staying on the theme of introvertedness and living in LA. Shoot me an email or comment here with ideas!
