Laguna’s historic La Casa del Camino hotel just got a fresh, funky makeover. The boutique hotel recently teamed with Riviera Magazine to create “La Casa Surf Project,” through which 10 hotel suites were redesigned by 10 hip companies and interior designers of their choice. Old-world Mediterranean décor was swapped for surf and skate-inspired furnishings, including hand-painted and signed surfboards and skateboards, funky recycled mosaics, underwater photomurals, eco-friendly and nature-inspired furniture, sea glass, exotic plants and oceanic color palettes.

Turquoise sea glass. A found treasure that carried me into the day. The sea glass, smoothly polished and paled to the lightest of blues, was lodged next to a rock on the beach. I slipped it like a jewel into the palm of my hand, rubbing its sand-tossed surface between my thumb and two fingers and wondered. How long it had been in the water? Where did it come from? Where did it start its journey? How long did it take to be transformed from a sharply edged broken piece to its now rounded corners?

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." "If I were to die tomorrow, this is exactly how I would want to be spending my time today..." This comment, made by a friend on another recent gray morning, seemed to say it all as we focused on gathering sea glass. We were lost in the focus and pleasure of it — two small children at play. We both went home with bags heavy with glass, mind images filled with the sand and its bright bits of color, warm hearts, and sore backs.

"Get a life. A real life …" -- Anna Quindlen A life is made of random bits and pieces. Random bits — like loose threads woven together — become a whole, interconnecting in ways that may only make sense at some later time. Or maybe never. Following the random bits through a day feels a lot like that 1991 cult film, "Slacker," starting one way and then making an abrupt, seemingly disconnected shift to follow another path. Random. In the dark, before the hawk's screeching call could be heard, an owl's soft whoo-hoo caught my attention.

"Gather ye rosebuds while ye may." The silence stretches, and stretches ? a longing fulfilled. In this "silence" are many sounds ? the laugh of a gull on the water, the soft slap of the waves of the morning-calm sea, chirruping finches, the whir of hummingbird wings. The splash as a cormorant dives below the smooth surface of water while a pelican glides by just inches away. Bright morning light is softened by scattered cloud cover. A panga boat angles away from the shelter of land.

Bending time. If only it were as easy to shift time as it is to imagine the possibilities of no time constraints. Hours drifting like gossamer clouds on a balmy summer day. No worries. No cares. No tick tick tick to dictate behavior. Often, time feels like a runaway train. Others, it's as sluggish as a clogged drain. Consider running late for work or an appointment. Minutes become measured in seconds. Hands of the clock flying faster than the blink of an eyelash. The signal turns red at just the wrong moment.

"Things hidden rap at the doors." Ukrainian proverb "To forget yourself is to be awakened to all things." Dogen Genjo koan As the Thanksgiving holiday approached, I was grumpy and "out of sorts," as some say. I had received some dismaying news, and while usually I would find myself working through such news with logic and reason, this time I found myself immersed in my own ego and totally unreasonable. How could they? What about me? Don't they know that I .... Blah, blah, blah.

CATHARINE COOPER "Island time," crows James, from the patio of Two Harbors Bar and Restaurant, as he kicks down a "Buffalo Milk" -- the signature drink of this Catalina establishment -- and relaxes with his wife, Lynn. Six of us, including Emma, Mike, Steve and I, chatter about our weekend getaway, while we wait for the Catalina Express to ferry us back to the mainland. It's hard to argue James' proclamation as we watch palms and colorful flowers sway in a warm and gentle breeze.
