My Favorite Vitamin – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS


Blogger Linda G. Hill, organizer of Just Jot It January, also coordinates a Stream of Consciousness Saturday writing event. The prompts that she uses varies from week to week.

This week the prompt directions are:

Find a word that starts with “oc” and use it in your post. Bonus points if you start and end with your post with an “oc” word.

The rules are simple. The basic ones are:

  1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing, (typos can be fixed) and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
  2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.

Occasionally, even though I’m glad I moved to Texas, I miss my California. Especially the beach. My favorite beach, which has been my go-to beach since after high school graduation (many, many moons ago!) is Laguna. I’m a bit of a beach snob. I don’t like flat, sandy beaches. I like craggy cliffs, rocky shores, and tide pools. I don’t even have to touch the water. I just need to see the vast ocean before me, hear the surf, and hear the sound of seagulls screaming in the air above me.

This is one of my favorite Facebook memes. And it’s true. I need the sea. I need the surf. I need the ocean.

    I get you!. My husband once asked if I was upset after a trip to New England where we didn’t find any real “beach” to hand out on, just crags and rocks. It was pretty much perfect though… Beach is nice, but it’s the expansiveness of the ocean that is its greatest beauty.

    It was fun to read this post. I like where you went with the prompt. There is something special about the ocean.

    I can definitely tell when I’m deficient in vitamin sea!

    Great job! Sorry that it’s taken me so long to visit, but I have even neglected the one blog that I do on my own. I seem to have missed a lot.
    Thank you for visiting 4F,1H.I truly appreciate it.
    I have been landlocked for so many years,it’s terrible.Two summers ago I got to barely see parts of the Chesapeake Bay,(my old stomping grounds); I did not even get to the ocean-proper. I’ve always loved the ocean and never should have left the coast.

      Life can slowly overwhelm us until we’re in a swirl and haven’t even noticed it happening. I hope you get a chance soon to get a huge dose of Vitamin Sea!
