My Heart Sleeps by the Sea


Early mornings outside always make me happy. The air is quiet and calm and the whole world feels hushed in the light of the rising sun. I settle into a little nook on the patio to continue the work I’ve already begun for another wooden sign. The wood has been sanded, white-washed, and dried. This happened days ago and the boards have since been tied together to hold the order in which they will be arranged. After breakfast and some yoga, I organize my materials and carefully begin to plan out the beautiful quote by Anne de Lenclos. It takes a few tries to get the perfect shade of teal, but a few hours later the quote is complete. Copper chain holds each verse together and the light colors of the paint mimic the hopeful air of Anne’s words.
