I have a weakness for sea glass. I’ve been collecting it since I was a teenager and serendipitously stumbled upon my first piece while beach combing in Monterey Bay, California. Want to see my first piece ever?
Do you know about sea glass? People look at me sideways when I tell them I collect it in little jars all around my house. Sea glass is actual glass that has washed ashore after being tumbled and polished by the ocean.
It’s beautiful, and unique. And each piece in my collection has come one at a time, painstakingly collected on beaches across the west coast. I love it. It makes me happy. It reminds me of the ocean, of beach combing, of my children running across the sand yelping into the salty air.
