Beach in a Bottle

Standard

Do you know Jim Croce’s “Time in a Bottle“? (You Tube of this song)  Granted, I was just a wee toddler when it came on the radio, but it’s an old favorite of mine. For one thing, I actually “never seem to have enough time, to do the things I want to do, once I find them”.  (Take note: this rather meek blog of mine.)  Then too, the idea of capturing time in a bottle somehow rings true to most people. Doesn’t it?  Imagine your sweetest memories… who wouldn’t want to preserve them.  And there never really is  enough time. So it seems, with Sand on the Brain as I have it… that I save time in the form of Beach in a Bottle.  It must be the Psammophile in me.

Like footprints in the sand… washed away.

Like footprints in the sand… washed away.

My blog is Sand On The Brain because I am quite often island dreaming and mentally somewhere with sandy shores and turquoise waters. When I need a more visual escape –but don’t have the luxury of hopping a plane — I do what I think many of us do; pull up (our out) the vacation pictures. After all, why do we take pictures in the first place? To hang on to those moments for a little longer, for a lifetime, for those moments we want to clearly remember.

Maybe you transfer your pictures to your computer to make room on the memory card for your next trip or event. Maybe that computer crashes and can’t be recovered. Maybe is not “maybe” for me.  Read the rest of this entry

Hello world!

Hello world!

Well, here I am, Sand On the Brain. Brand new to blogging, so give me a little time to get up and running. Just booked a trip to the Caribbean for 10/14/09, and it hit me; “I think I would like to blog about my trip and other random beach-y thoughts. I’ve got enough floatin’ around in this noggin that some folks might find interesting.” So, bear with me while I get up to speed… and then sloooow it down to share some of the granules of sand on my brain.

Welcome!
