Under heavy, grey clouds and beside waves reflecting the muted colours of the sky, I walked by the sea. Along a deserted beach, with the cold wind whipping at my shirt sleeves and even colder waves washing over my bare feet, I felt rejuvenated after weeks of illness and days yearning for the ocean. Away from the sea for too long and I notice its absence. Upon returning, I noticed its calming presence and its beauty.
Dark, grey clouds above the waves.
A blue jellyfish washed ashore.
A tiny, glassy jewel from the sea.
A single seagull's feather.
Driftwood on a deserted beach.
For me, the ocean is a place that is restorative and centering. It's a place where I can be alone with my thoughts. A place where Mother Nature is my companion. Perhaps it is for you too.
