I was watching a movie where the heroine was a playwright with an incredible home overlooking the ocean and beach. I thought to myself that it was an ideal place to write. Quiet, serene and beautiful.
A few weeks later a friend offered me his place to stay. My husband and I were sitting in the dining room of said place and I said very seriously, “I wish I had a place like this with a desk overlooking the ocean just like this…” then I stopped.
This home in Sea Ranch is on a small hill. My husband set up a desk for me in the loft. The loft overlooks a swale with yellow grasses. The swale ends at the edge to white water ocean. All could be seen from the window where my ‘desk’ was set up.
Birds flew by my window constantly. A hummingbird lives in the bush by the window and a hawk visits the swale and flies low every evening in search of his dinner.
I realized that what I asked for I got already.
