Welcome to my blog! I love this gallery because it is a little about me. My name is Reina. It means “Queen” in Spanish, and in my world I can be. We all can be kings and queens in our writing world! I am first a Christian, happily, married with great kids who fill my day with lots of joy and happiness. I draw many of my inspirations from God, family, friends, career, culture and experiences. I thank God daily for all the strength, purpose and guidance He gives me every day. Without Him, I’m a shell. I know for a fact– He has and always will be with me. While I believe everything happens for a reason, love not judgment comes first.
The title to my blog is not meant to be slick, racy or a wisecrack cliche…but taken literally. I love the beach! I believe the sand and water has a spirit that draws people to it every day. It gives us an uplift and regeneration. Symbolically, I also see the beach as a divide between us and God. Finally, I have many pleasant memories and experiences growing up at the beach so it is one of my favorite places.
Writing has evolved into a passion for me. I don’t know if it’s age or what but I get a lot of joy and satisfaction from it. I have learned through blogging here that consistency is best but when I do come back in, there’s always someone to lend a hand even if it’s a simple “like”. I have followed, and am following, great writers which I hope to one day replicate. Thank you for your awesome stories. I am always eager to learn more of its craft and art! I enjoy writing poems and short stories of many different things and goings-on in my life. My hope is to make connections with others who may be going through similar experiences and exchange “cyber” high-fives, embraces, or laughs. As well as acknowledge and say to each other, it’s okay. I hope you enjoy your visit. I welcome comments and guarantee feedback. Grab an icy one, or cup of coffee, and join me on this journey on the “Life is a beach”…blog! God bless!
