took some time this morning for myself,
and went beach combing alone.
i was telling a couple of friends i was going,
and they didn't know what beach combing was.
i forget, so often, that i am not from here.
that they are not from there.
so, just to clear things up...
A beachcomber is someone who "combs" (or searches) the beach, and the intertidal zone in general, looking for things of value, interest or utility.
now i rarely find anything of utilitarian purposes, or even value, for that matter.
but interest... yes.. that is what i find.
things of interest.
to me anyway.
and i guess, to me, they are valuable as well.
so, i think i am going again tomorrow morning.
maybe i will take a nap on the rocks,
in the sunshine,
along the banks of the river,
and i will find value and interest for sure.
