Beach Balloons...

Beach Balloons
Photograph by: Karen Holmes

Why is there no one in the chair?...

Simple - they are off living life…
  • splashing with crazy abandon into the chilly ocean...
  • smacking a sandy volley-ball with a killer overhead serve...
  • roasting hot dogs blistering on an open-air charcoal grill...
  • gathering shells and picking up only heart-shaped rocks...
  • exchanging affectionate salty kisses
  • scooping up sand-buckets of custom-made moments to cherish and revisit... forever. 
There is so much there beyond the chair... such joy being in the company of others who lift you higher…

Unfetter the balloons... get up out of the chair…life is waiting for you to be in it!

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.
