I See Seashells...And Sea Serpents

Summer has finally arrived, and crowds are headed to the beach to swim, fish, and enjoy the Gulf waters. Common advice is to be aware of rip tides, jellyfish, and over-exposure to the Texas sun, but if eye witnesses and newspaper accounts from years past are to be believed, there might be one more thing to be aware of…sea serpents!

Placeholder imageThe vegetable gardens have been weeded, tilled, planted with seeds or seedlings, and fortified with fertilizer. The flower beds have been dead-headed, trimmed, re-stocked with fresh mulch and well-appointed with complementary vibrant and dazzling spring and summer plants.

The pots and planters have been readied with additional potting soil and refreshed with colorful foliage and vigorous blooms and blossoms. This should be the moment in time to enjoy all that toil and effort, the time to observe our completed undertaking with a sense of accomplishment and pride.

But what about the pests?

Best Beach Reads for Summer 2022
There's Nothing Better Than Picking Out A Book to Escape Into

Book Reads image Summertime, and the livin’ is easy, right? Well, maybe in days gone by, but there’s very little “easy livin’” in the Summer of ’22. Those who are lucky enough to get some time off work often spend several days just trying to decompress and struggle to turn down the noise and tune out the cacophony of discontent. We are the first humans in history to be bombarded by a 24/seven, 365 days a year cycle of information coming at us from all directions, leaning in from all directions—confusing, confounding, aggravating, bombastic, titillating, funny, heart-tugging, and tragic. Trying to just “get lost” in thought is nearly impossible without a decompression chamber.

Want to know a secret? You can find the greatest escape in human history through the written words on the pages of a great book.
