I have been gone the past few days. But this afternoon was the time that I have been looking forward to for days. There is something about the ocean that is so good for my soul. I don’t know what it is. The sound of the repetitive waves crashing, the feel of the cold water, the salty mist in the air, burying my feet in the warm white sand.. or just looking out to where the sky meets the ocean. I don’t know what it is, but it renews me. Its calms my mind and my body.
I wanted to share some of my favorite quotes about my great love -the ocean..
She is made up of depths even the ocean couldn’t fathom.
There is no place like the beach… where the land meets the sea and the sea meets the sky.
Sometimes, the ocean floor is only a stop on the journey. And it is when you are at this lowest point, that you are faced with a choice. You can stay there at the bottom, until you drown. Or you can gather pearls and rise back up — stronger from the swim and richer from the jewels.
When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused. -Rainer Maria Rilke
