“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
The image on this chip of a sand dune path leading towards the beach, bathed under a clear blue sky with birds soaring overhead, beautifully captures Emerson's sentiment. It's as if the path beckons one to immerse themselves in nature's embrace, to feel the world in its purest form. This visual is a poignant reminder that there's an unmatched joy in the simplest of life's pleasures.
Charles Bowden eloquently stated, “Summertime is always the best of what might be,” and it resonates deeply. Each summer's onset feels like a treasure chest of opportunities, moments that shouldn’t be wasted. It brings more time under the warm sun, moments to relish the simplicity around us - the allure of the outdoors, the beach, and the pool. It's time best spent with friends and family. Sobriety heightens these sensations, making every experience richer and every moment more profound.
This token is designed to be a tangible reminder of that feeling. A sensation of walking along the dunes, sensing the soft sand cushioning each step, the salty fragrance of the ocean teasing the nostrils, and the distant chatter and laughter of people and seagulls frolicking by the waves.
