I took this video on my iPhone at Santa Monica Beach so I could transport myself back to the ocean anywhere, anytime. It is my ultimate happy place. And while I’ve grown pretty good at getting there in my mind, there’s nothing like seeing and hearing it for real…or close to real. Look at those glorious waves. Imagine your toes in the sand. Listen to the children laughing, the wind blowing, the world breathing in and out and in and out.

I thought you, too, might enjoy a minute at the beach, even as you sit at your desk or kitchen table or on your lunch break. And so, I give you…dear you…the wonderful, beautiful, magical ocean.
