is the process I feel when I dip my feet into the ocean...an exchange between my body's chemistry and the salt water of the great mighty. Having just returned from a wonderful vacation at the shore with nuclear and extended family, I was reminded of this painting done many years previously of my friend Jo. Between us, we raised 6 wonderful and energetic sons. We had more to do than time allowed. The annual trips to the seashore provided such a great relief from the worries, the cares and the work load. The ocean is a healing balm.
