Sea Glass - It is my Therapy!

Sea Glass Therapy
Searching for sea glass makes me happy! I always feel like a child. A forty something adult now but when I am sea glass hunting nothing can stop me from feeling like a child! It is mindless, freeing and fun and literally free.
The glint of the sun hitting on the sand with water rolling over it, the glass sparkling right in front of you! Ah, Ha, a new find it is sea foam green.
Where did it come from, what kind of bottle or glass object was it,what did it contain at some point?
On and on again to where sometimes I am so lost that I forget time which is exactly what I am really looking for forgetting time and being so immersed in something that it takes you away from everything.
I also sea glass hunt with friends and the amazing conversations that we can go to is just incredible. It is like we have a spell over us and the hunt is on and always a incredible happy, joyous wish that our friend finds a really cool find. I find solace in sea glass hunting when alone and with my friends it is a certain comradery that I cannot explain. Lost in Time is the best way I can explain it! The glass tumbling has been lost in time until you or I find it and appreciate it's journey!
