I find the Santa Barbara harbor an inspiring place to hang out, especially at the beginning of a new year. Harbors are on the edge of an ocean that is continuously in motion. Harbors are places to anchor, places to rest, places to recharge. Harbors are like punctuation; places where boats stop at the beginning and end of their journeys. A harbor is a safe haven. I see them as a metaphor – a symbol that reminds us to pause, reflect, and recharge while we are on the journeys of life.

This summer I had the pleasure to visit Bar Harbor, Main, an inspiring place to recharge.

  1. Having grown up in a harbor, I love the idea of them as “punctuation”. It makes perfect sense. They’re a pause in the adventure, a respite or sheltering port in the weathering wild. I miss that life. Thanks for bringing it back.
