The sounds that the waves make are like a rhythm that brings peace to one who is craving for an escape from life’s complexities. It’s like music to the ears that soothes the hurts and pains that the heart feels with the constant ebb and flow that creates a pattern of constancy and reliable expectations.
It seems that there is that connection between the sea and I. It doesn’t matter that I haven’t mastered the water and can not swim in it no matter how calm.
I feel free and feel so much joy it seems to bubble out from the bottom of my heart and seep through the deepest, darkest thoughts in my mind whenever I watch the waves and feel the ocean breeze caress my skin.
There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more. ~Lord Byron
When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing – just sitting and looking at the sea, or watching the wind blowing the tree limbs, or waves rippling on a pond, a flickering candle or children playing in the park? ~Ralph Marston
