Peace is at the Beach

Temperatures have soared in Chicago, and so it's fitting that my beach article appeared on kveller today. The idea for it occurred to me many years ago while sprawled on a beach towel, running the fine Chicago beach sand through my fingers. (Side note: You can make good on an idea many years later!)

Even with three boisterous kids, there was a certain calm that descended upon me once we were settled at the beach. The kids would happily dig away, and I had some blissful moments to myself, lying there in the sand, letting the constant swoosh of the waves wash over me.

Happy summer everyone!


  1. It's been hot here in the last few days as well.

    1. Getting even hotter now, but then again, it's July!
