It was a productive month for this Palos Verdes real estate broker/agent (read that as lots of hours on the job) and when one area of life claims more of your time another area is in danger of getting short-changed. Balance is such a fluid state.

 

I am no slouch when it comes to seizing the moment. Monday I saw an opening in my schedule and filled it with a 90-minute walk on my favorite stretch of beach and hiking trails in Rancho Palos Verdes.  After hiking the hills surrounding Trump National Golf Course (both the climb and the view left me breathless), I traversed the steep trail down to the beach to let the waves lap at my feet, breathe in the salty air and enjoy the sound of the ocean up close and personal.

 

As I rounded the corner of the rocky cliff and reached the sandy section of the beach, this bench greeted my arrival.  I took it as a good omen.  Work, rest, play.
