• Thinking

    by Erika McLitus

    STOP.
    endless looping arguments,
    paradoxical logic traps leading to
    p a n i c k e d
    fatalistic conclusions,
    misjudgments,
    brooding.
    STOP.
    you don’t know
    everything w*o*n*d*e*r*f*u*l
    doesn’t just disappear
    even if THAT did.
    trust.
    choose to be optimistic
    because you want to be.
    don’t smother the hope
    that’s fluttering inside,
    trying to twist a maybe into a certainty.
    believe
    because you want it to be true.
    Sometimes it’s as simple as that.

    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
