Each week since the weather has been getting nice, Tim’s voice instructor has offered that I can go sit and read out back by the brook. For one reason or another, I didn’t go back there until this week. Oh my goodness! It is beautiful. I so love the sound of water moving, the rain, a babbling brook, the ocean. I could sit and listen to those sounds for hours. It is so simply relaxing and de-stressing.

It is simply a little piece of heaven she has over there on “their mountain”. A beautiful little bench next to the stream allows you to sit and ponder everything or think about nothing at all.




My ideal place to live would be one of those houses perched high atop a rocky cliff by the ocean. Safe enough that it wouldn’t wash away in a storm but close enough to the ocean that I could walk on the beach and fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Perfection. A close second would be a cute little stream like this running somewhere through our yard, but obviously not too close to do damage. Then again, a pond with a waterfall would be just fine too. (hint, hint)


Then, when you’ve had enough of the brook, there is this little section of her yard to relax. Tell me, isn’t that just perfect?
