I Saw Life and it was Something Real…and it was Something Private, by Beverly Hicks Burch

“There it was before her - life. Life: she thought but she did not finish her thought. She took a look at life, for she had a clear sense of it there, something real, something private…” ~ To the Lighthouse, Virginia Wolfe ~ Some of you may recognize this spot.

And, Now the Rest of the Story…, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Picture of the Day – Solitude at Driftwood Beach

Late in the afternoon on 9/11 Tall & Handsome and I drove over to Jekyll Island (GA). We really wanted to see Driftwood Beach. I was fascinated with the old oak trees that grow close to the beach. Over time, these tree become the giant driftwood “sculptures” on the beach as weather, time and erosion… Continue reading Picture of the Day – Solitude at Driftwood Beach
