Gifts From the Sea
I have always lived in landlocked places, but I love the sea. I have reminders of the sea all over my house. I always have shells and stones in my pocket when I come home from a beach vacation.
The photo above shows a collection of sea glass mixed in with shells. I have collected the shells myself. I have a friend in Hawaii who sends me sea glass.
I always take a million pictures at the beach, too. I like to remember EXACTLY how it looked. Then I combine them with shells or stones I found at that place. Here are a couple I put together in frames:
I have these reminders all around the house. I wonder if I will ever have the chance to live by the sea. If I do, I wonder if I will ever come to take it for granted. I can't imagine that. I would be happy to be able to walk on the beach every day. I don't have to have entertainment at the beach. I can just sit and watch the ocean for hours at a time. The sights, the sounds, the smells, the feel of the sea breeze all soothe me and make me happy.
