Beach Love

No matter where you are or what you’re doing, there’s a way to escape. No one can make you do anything you don’t want to do.

There may be a time when the system which calls itself your society seems to be trying to force you to work for them. It could be through school, a job, or a “social norm”. None of these are truly required if you accept yourself as a free individual.

It should be noted, as a word of caution, that many who have realized this truth have gone too far beyond their ability to be self-reliant, and then fallen prey to a different kind of requirement. Illicit drugs, for example, are not a method of exhibiting freedom, only another way to enslave, or to be enslaved.

A great way to avoid the intentional and unintentional tyrannies is to go to the beach. Going to the beach can be done literally or figuratively. Even a person with a mediocre imagination can take a minute and picture a beach.

Call up an image of sea and sand. Imagine yourself wandering shoeless along the warm expanse of wet sand. Hear the waves gently pushing up the beach. See gulls capturing the breeze to glide, dip, and rise again.

Where will you go? What will you do on the beach today?

Anything you can imagine, because you’re free.

This is where I'm supposed to brag about how I've written seven novels, twelve screenplays, thousands of short stories, four self-help books, and one children's early-reader, but I'd rather stay humble. You can find out about things I've written or follow my barchive (web archive, aka 'blog) at or follow me on twitter @kurt_gailey. I love sports and music and books, so if you're an athlete or in a band or you're a writer, give me a follow and I'll most likely follow you back. I've even been known to promote other people's projects.
