Feed the soul

Today was a day spent entirely in the pursuit of therapy. 

Two co-workers-turned-friends from my summer days at Jamba Juice and I hiked up to Potato Chip Rock. The morning was overcast, the trail quiet, the desert scenery dry and rugged, and our hearts racing as we scaled the mountain. My legs have since turned to jelly and I know they'll be sore in the morning, but it was worth it. 

And my day ended at Torrey Pines State Beach, sitting alone on the shore....silently thinking about the world. Synchronizing my breathing with the crashing waves. Just listening to the gulls and sand and chilly breeze. I have mountains of homework before me now, but when does that ever change? Honestly. It was a "feed the soul" kind of day.
