The ocean stirs the heart,
inspires the imagination
& brings eternal joy to the soul.
I have always been a beach girl. Growing up, we went to the beach daily and honestly, I love the beach no matter the season nor the weather. There is something magical about the power of the sea which calms my tender soul and I am ever grateful for her.
Perhaps being a Pisces, it’s innate in me, that love of the sea. Two fish swimming is the sign for Pisces which is the last of the astrological signs in the zodiac. Creativity and passion for writing have always been dear to me, for as you know, I love to connect through writing (hence the blog!).
Summer is upon us, with the start of Memorial Day weekend here in the States. My beloved beach will be overcrowded now with tourists and beach goers and gone will be the gentle solitude which has soothed my soul frequently.
I am reminded of the quieter times that I enjoyed my solitude at the beach. Sky and sea met on the horizon seamlessly, blue on blue. The warm sand beneath my toes beckoning me as the sun warmed my soul. Scattered shells and bits of sea glass treasures polka dot the sand. The gentle sound of waves lapping the shoreline like a lullaby just for me. When I was immersed in the sea, she rocked me, enveloped me, like a mother with a toddler at bedtime. Gulls flew overhead, calling to friends. Pipers scampered at the edge where the sand and the water met, tiptoeing quickly in the surf. At night, the moon reflected on the dark, mysterious water full of unseen animals who swam quietly by. Still the waves’ melodious song called to me and I answered, my heart full of peace.
There is so much peace and love at the beach when we commune with her. Do you feel the same way? Does the sea beckon to you too?
