Weekends, Saturday and Sunday, are a special time for just about everyone who works during the week. For many, Saturday and Sunday are a time for fun and relaxation. And for some, the week-end offers a break from the labors of life. For the many people who live near a beach, water way, river or ocean shore, it is a time that offers many potential endeavors: a time to relax and go enjoy nature, to go surfing, to picnic with family, to sit around the bomb-fire and star gaze and many other potential activities. I wrote this book to motivate others to go and enjoy the beach. The art and poetry in this book are meant to remind you of the awesome beauty of nature. There is a painting and poem for every Saturday and Sunday of the year for a total of 104. In this way, should you ever wish to be uplifted by positive and caring words, in a manner which is inspired and dedicated to a 'BEACH LIFESTYLE,' all you have to do is open this book and read it. This book was made with love. Some of the poetry in this book came from a place deep in my heart which aims to offer relaxation, peace and enjoyment. Other poems were created to motivate and inspire you to get out into nature, to go out and breath-in the natural beauty that surrounds us, to live life more fully, go surfing, go running, go journal, sight-seeing and so much more. It is my goal and the objective of this book that it should bring you joy and satisfaction. I thank you for acquiring it and I wish you the greatest and most motivated life ever. Sincerely, Grace Divine

I am a survivor who believes in the inexorable power of the human spirit. I am a believer who has seen through tragedy into the eye of the setting sun knowing that the morrow can bring a new and brighter day. I am a compassionate human being who wants to be there for others. And I do this by writing transformational stories filled with passion and love. I was born in California. At five, my parents divorced. My father then abducted me and took me to Mexico. He then flew me to Spain and left me in a catholic boarding school for several years during which time I didn't see my mother. Then, when I was ten, my paternal grandmother took me to Mexico. There I was exposed to the mysticism and magic of the native Indian cultures. When I returned to the U.S., I was a teenager who couldn't speak English. Happily, I saw my mother again. But then she disappeared. Her body was never found. I went to ten schools for the first twelve years. During this time, I had to contend with a father who was a dangerous sadist. I was barely eighteen when he threatened to kill me with a 38 revolver. I left home and moved to the university dorms. Years later I graduated with a Bachelor's Degree and the ability to speak six languages. And while at UCI, I married. My first baby was stillborn. Notwithstanding this and other hardships, I enrolled and graduated from UCLA Law School. Afterward, we moved to Texas. While raising my children, I received a Masters in Art and I began a career as a visual/writing artist. I've shown at centers and commercial establishments. I've also taught art in public access TV. One of my paintings is featured in the documentary by the BBC: THE PRIVATE LIFE OF A MASTERPIECE: THE KISS BY GUSTAV KLIMT ICON OF THE 20TH CENTURY. Then, after years of marriage, I divorced and I began to write. A year later I had finished my first novel, APPLE TOWN, CALIFORNIA. I also drew and painted hundreds of illustrations. And where do I get my inspiration? From childhood, I had a vivid imagination. Incredibly, my nighttime dreams would manifest in the physical world. Today, I work as a psychic medium. APPLE TOWN, CALIFORNIA comes from this inner place and includes several of my dream sequences. It is a story about facing insurmountable challenges and succeeding; a story of light and hope amidst utter darkness that speaks of the human's souls' capacity for incredible transformation.
