I love discovering new places where nature surprises me with beauty. The latest is the masterpiece that is each grain of sand!
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
This post reminds me of how many times I have complained, upon coming home from a day at the beach, to discover the sand has made it’s way home with me – I just know I’ll be sweeping it up for weeks! But really, every time I reach for the broom I should instead be grateful and enjoy the fond memories the sand provides! 🙂 Thank you, Russ!
Good point! Fond memories indeed. Funny you should mention going to the beach, Andrea. Beloved, Older Son, his wife, GRANDSON, Daughter’s boyfriend, and I, along with all 6 of our dogs, all went to the beach this weekend. We came back with enough sand to fill a small sandbox! (Not really, but it sure feels like it.) That’s a LOT of nature’s masterpieces to deal with.
Where’s our microscope?
Thank you, Andrea!
What perfect timing!!
Grains of sands get into my hair and drive me nuts and I hate it………….oh that isn’t the point of this post this is about how great sand is and not how bloody annoying it is when it gets into bits of your body………………lol
LOL! For me, it’s shoes. Once sand gets into my shoes they are pretty much ruined for me. (I know, I’ve got a bad case of Prince(ss) and the Pea syndrome!)
That stuff sticks to us like glue. The humans have to brush it out of our curly fur.

LOL! Yes, Duke knows the feeling too! But now all of you know that due to its beauty sand is more like glitter and glue!
