This morning, my thoughts are back in Texas.

The white sand of South Padre Island against the blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the blue Texas sky reminds me of the colours of Delft pottery.

Because the sand was so dense and powdery soft, walking along the beach was a great workout.

It’s hard to believe that I’ve been retired for 6 years already. I’m truly blessed to have the good health that allows me to enjoy so many wonderful things that life has to offer.

“Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend.”

~ Lao Tzu
