Today I used the hydro massage bed at my gym. With the purchase of a premium membership, I can use it for 10 minutes a day. It is heavenly, and usually I leave feeling relaxed.
While being pampered, there are the options to watch different videos of scenery, whatever kind anyone might happen to like. I always choose the ocean and beach views. For some reason, today, while lying there and watching the waves lap against the shore, I felt strangely cheated. Even though the water was aqua blue, and the sand looked good enough to run between my fingers, it just wasn’t good enough! It felt like I was being offered a cheap imitation, when all I longed for was the real thing. Keep in mind, I live in a desert!
