A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

The last two days there have been clouds in the sky, which makes for a nice sunrise. Yesterday I scattered my mother's ashes as I threatened promised my mom several years ago to do. It was something the two of us had agreed upon and with coffee mug in hand (as my mother had always done for a Myrtle Beach sunrise) I carried her ashes out in a cut-crystal bowl and scattered them in the surf. When my mother was hospitalized this spring and had to undergo the pain of blood work (she and I have tiny veins) I'd tell her to go to her "happy place" on the beach in Myrtle Beach. And now indeed she's in her happy place.
