Happy Place

The other day I was trying to think of some place relaxing and peaceful. I finally thought of one: the ocean outside my grandparent's house in Maui in the morning. Early in the day, the waves are mellow and hardly move you at all, and that makes the water so clear that you can see right to the bottom. It's the only time of day that happens. I was feeling so good just from the thought of it that I put a little movie together from the video I took on my last morning there. For the full effect I threw a little Coldplay on there, too.

Now when I watch it I get a happyyy feeling {complacent smile here}.

Note: It's not enthralling, especially with this low resolution. But mellow out and watch the ripples... you might enjoy it. (In the clear video, you can see the ripples of sunlight on the sand at the bottom of the water, and all the coral floating around)

Ahhh, thanks for posting that video and song. I feel so relaxed. You should put that post on your popular post list so I can find it easily when I feel myself getting tense. Thanks for the therapy!
