Mermaid Tears

Mermaid Tears

I was helping a friend create a blog the other day and we were going through names. Well as a writer I know Google is my best friend for finding names. As a fellow seaglass huntress I thought it would be cool for her to incorporate the name into her blog.

She ended up settling on a different name (but if you get the chance check her awesome blog out but in the process I discovered some really cool things about seaglass. And that included the names people have called it through out history.

One of those names is “Mermaid tears.” As legend (and google) have it, mermaids use to cry when sailors were lost at sea, and as such their tears were turned into glass. ┬áThus all that beautiful glass you come across on the beaches? THOSE are mermaid tears.

As someone who is sure in her past life she was a mermaid, I am obsessed with the name (I even wanted to change my instagram and rename this blog that, alas it was already taken, Anchors are cooler anyway and with a K?) as well as the history.

Next time you see a piece of seaglass on the beach…remember a mermaid created it somewhere out in the vast ocean.

I am a country girl living on the Upper East Side of the concrete jungle. My friends call me a modern day Renaissance woman. I have dabbled in a little bit of everything, from being a yoga instructor to holistic chef, to skating coach, to glorified nanny, to student. I am a self admitted coffee junkie. A wannabe mermaid. A wanderluster who dreams of other countries. A fashionista who really does need a bigger bank account. But most important of all, I dream of living in a bungalow by the ocean and being a published writer (in style of course) sipping coffee in the morning and a martini in the evening. I love to meet my readers, so feel free to comment or email me. Happy reading!
