As part of my writing business, I travel to numerous places, not only for inspiration but also for the marketing of my books. Most of the places I visit involve oceans and often islands, such as The Bahamas and the Cayman Islands. I don’t get to spend much time on the beaches since I’m working but, whenever I can, I seize the chance to walk barefoot in the sand as waves lap on my feet.
Of course, due to the pandemic, I haven’t traveled anywhere this year. Fortunately, I enjoy living in the Sonoran Desert. However, the one thing the desert doesn’t have is a beach with ocean waves. In addition, the desert sand is made from rocks and I miss the sand made from seashells, which has a different texture.
Knowing I was missing the salty bodies of water, my friend, Pam, created a beautiful card for me. She said the sea called to her on my behalf. The card is from the seashells and sand grains on the beach! It brought me much joy.
Pam is an incredibly talented artist. I have several of her paper paintings in my home and have given her permission to share a few here.
She is also a skilled editor and a fabulous web mistress. And most importantly, she is a special friend.
~NOTE: Thanks, Elaine! I appreciate you very much. Pam~
