When I am feeling down or struggling to sleep, I always reach back into my memories and recall a serene, ideal time in my life.
I close my eyes and I am back there, I can feel the soft heat of the sun against my face as I welcome the escape of the gentle breeze. The sound of children laughing and up-beat music fills my ears as I look around at my family. They surround me with warm smiles and laughter-wrinkled eyes. The memory of a beach is my escape.
