Hi F&F,

This post is purely a pictorial. I hope you enjoy the sights at the shore.

I’m an analog girl living in a digital world. I’m happy except when I’m sad. I’m serious, smart and sophisticated except when I’m silly, obtuse and crude. I’m ambitious and disciplined; except when I’m apathetic and self indulgent. I‘m thoughtful, generous and honest; except when I’m insensitive, cheap and lying. I’m grateful; I’m grateful; I am grateful.

    • Thanks for commenting. The first time I went to the event I was stuck on and a little saddened at the impermanence. Now it doesn’t disturb me at all. I feel it’s such a positive testament to the human spirit to endeavor, to create, communicate and connect with community. Some of the contestants work with the intensity and focus similar to that seen when people create mandalas as a meditation.

Comments, questions and suggestions are welcome. The occasional ping is music to my ears.
