Life takes a new direction…


“Yes is the new No.” That’s what my friend said to me and we found ourselves using it quite a bit this past weekend. She invited me to come to the Cape and stay with her at her brothers house in Sippewissett near Falmouth & Woods Hole MA.  What a remarkable and transforming experience it’s been in such a short period of time.

Going outside of your comfort zone can be an exciting experience. For someone who borders on agoraphobic where it’s truly a feat just to leave the house and make it to Starbuck’s on occasion makes it all the more remarkable.

I’m not the first person to discover Sippewisset on Cape Cod butwhat a magical place it became for me these last few brief days and touched me more than I ever planned. The sheer visual beauty of the Salt Marsh, Ponds and Beach were breath taking as were all the natural sounds and complimentary silence that is the Cape.

The beauty of the delicate ecosystem I saw while I was here was truly amazing.  When the tide goes out and you look closely at the rocks you can see an entire world of small snails clinging to rocks.

Look even closer and you can see their trails in the shimmering sand as they make a mad dash to a new rock before the tide comes back their way.  Truly mesmerizing.  Mother nature has a way of helping you really put things back in perspective.  I came away with a greater appreciation of how interconnected we all are not only as humans but as guests on this planet which she allows up to occupy but for a mere blip of time.
