I am joining Lisa Kettell's mermaid tea party today. Did you ever hear of sea glass?--after reading some books and hearing about festivals I learned some people refer to it as mermaid tears or fairy glass---I don't, but I feel there is something magical about sea glass. I joined two sea glass collector groups in the last month. The groups inspired me to think of why I collect sea glass. I think you know by now I do like to collect and have to narrow it down sometimes. For me the joy of collecting sea glass has been: I will think something like "I haven't found any blue glass in a while" and what do you know a few steps later there will be the most beautiful cobalt blue glass. This doesn't happen all the time, but it happens and when it does it is magical. It puts a big smile on my face and I just feel no matter what is going on in my life everything is going to be just fine. One group made me think back to a week back about two years ago.....each day I ended up having a theme---I need to find where I wrote it down--I can only remember one day......I like to find blue and green glass the most---one day I had a pocket full of clear glass and it was a day like today----a beautiful crisp blue skied clear day. I got home and started writing.....how it was a clear day and I found nothing but clear glass....as I was writing Rachel Ray was on and Donny Osmond was her guest...she was giddy---I was giddy--he was my big crush growing up (I wore purple socks for years and Marie and I share the exact b-day) and he just made an album of classics. He sings "On a Clear Day". I was by myself, but I was smiling ear to ear. Magic---I tell you! I hope to journal more about my finds on the beach and the beauty of blogging is a couple of years from now I will know exactly where to find what I wrote down. Enjoy your mermaid travels......I am off to do some mermaid surfing to the mermaid party myself.
