Just a pretty picture

Something soothing. This is Old Tampa Bay, looking west towards Clearwater. This is a good picture for me to look at when the stress of work heightens, when the phone rings too often, when you hear the sirens cry in the streets on a night in the cold rain.

Sunrise. On a tranquil bay in the early morning when the sky is turning pink, the pale color like the inside of a conch shell. The gulls wheel over the causeway, then return to the dock, and each one finds its own perch.

Ooohh, I think I'd like to be there right now with my husband's oversized shirt on, legs dangling.
