Paradise On My Mind

(Day 1 Writing Assignment: Unlock your mind, free writing in 20 minutes.)

I have never really considered myself a writer, let alone a creative one. I have written many business letters, reports and presentations but I have never really tried my hand at real writing, until now. My blog has been up only since mid-May of this year and I have posted several compositions in those few days. It’s been fun and liberating. I write to keep my mind going, like Brain Camp. In the process if I am able to entertain a few readers, I find myself humbled and grateful. I have a newfound passion.

In trying to unlock my mind, I realised that there really isn’t much in there. My family and I are taking off on a trip tomorrow and it is filled with just a mental list of things to pack. I love the beach and I can’t wait to feel the sand on my toes and the sun on my face again. Right now I am deciding which bathing suit to bring, how many pieces of clothing, what outfits to wear…. It’s all pretty trivial but it’s really all that’s up there, but I still have another 10 minutes so I’ll try to dig a little deeper.

Nothing. Just thoughts on the beach and how I can’t wait to smell the sea and touch the sand. I just want to stare into the ocean and take in the beauty and tranquility of my surroundings. I have never really been a creature of luxury. I don’t mind living in spartan conditions for as long as the beach is nearby and waiting for me. Grilled seafood is the best. I have to sink my teeth in some while on this trip. I. Can’t. Wait.

February 2014. Paradise is waiting for me.

Is it 20 minutes already? I think I spent too much time looking for this photo to embellish my rather mundane post.
