Ides of March Meltdown

I thought I'd kick off the week with a little Zen aid; some low-quality video I shot from Fisherman’s Beach on Nantucket last July specifically for this time of year when I, like most New Englanders, experience a weather-related psychotic break. Symptoms range from mild to severe depending upon several factors. For instance, if you were able to escape to a warmer climate in February, you may just get a little grumpy about now. If you have been housebound all season, say, in a basement wearing Gortex mittens, you could end up babbling incoherently while slathering yourself with Hawaiian Coconut Oil. My mid-March meltdown tends to manifest as foolhardy rebellion: I refuse to dress in layers and often walk barefoot to the mailbox in 40 degree temperatures, squinting in the icy head wind. Time to compile the spa GCs and go in for an overhaul. Or just say screw it and stowaway on Goy's upcoming Floridian business trip.

So, enjoy a 32-second vacation. Breathe in the ocean air, listen to the soothing surf, smell the seasalt. We're almost there.

Ha! We had the same idea. Except mine was a mid-February breakdown.

Too funny. I'd say great minds think alike but I think it's more about them unraveling in a similar way. Great minds going tanning.

I know! We HAVE to come. I'll sleep on a chaise lounge if I have to. I'm working on it behind the scenes:)

I love Fisherman's Beach. We spent considerable time there during the week this past summer. Each day, there was always 1 person who had it in them to bring a cooler full of Coronas (and limes), and that in turn infected the others who didn't feel up for it to partake in said beverages.

Just returned from a coffee run during which I was pelted by a "wintry mix" of snow, sleet and rain. This clip was well-timed, KJ. ohmmmmmmmm.

BG-This year, I'll pan from the ocean to the beach chair conga line. Cannot wait.
