February is my birth month.
It's a sketchy month in New England -- so I'm usually fighting my winter blues all month and feeling funny about aging.
Well, this year is even trickier. I'm turning 50.
In addition to spending a lot of time looking back, thinking about what is ahead, and trying desperately to live in the moment, I'm just plain old longing for warmer weather, green things growing, and time by the sea. So, here are a few shots from the ocean visits I had last year -- to cheer and remind me of places I want to see when the weather warms up.
