I want to age like sea glass. Smoothed by tides, but not broken. I want my hard edges to soften. I want to ride the waves and go with the flow. I want to catch a wave and let it carry me to where I belong. I want to be picked up and held gently by those who delight in my well earned patina and appreciate the changes I went through to achieve that beauty. I want to enjoy the journey and always remember that if you give the ocean something breakable it will turn it into something beautiful. I want to age like sea glass.

His daughter says, “He is busy now in other dimensions. He is not resting.”
I love this story from Hawksmoor in the UK, especially that the staff member does not have to work off the mistake. Yikes! This is where we spent Brian’s 40th, at their Spitalfields location. Fantastic memorable meal so I am glad they are taking a mistake and being cheerful about it.
High above the Timberline! Love Mt Hood. A great way to spend the 4th – we stayed in the same room the Roosevelts did when they were here for its dedication. iPhone doesn’t do the mountains in the distance justice.
