Have you ever noticed how the color of the sea can change? There are days when the water is turquoise. Days when it is green, as though envious. Days when it is grey. There are days when I cannot possibly discern the horizon because the hue of the ocean and the colour of the sky are one, and the same.
The water displays emotion too. It can be angry, peaceful, happy, or adventurous. If you pay attention to the moods of the sea you will learn to tell if it is daring you to enter or warning you to stay away. You will know when it beckons and invites you in.
I love the sound and sight of the sea birds – gracefully soaring above, darting, diving, calling.
I cherish our walks on the beach. The scent of the sea. The fine wet sand between my toes. The waves lapping at my feet. The soft breeze drifting in over the water.
The way your hand fits into mine and the sound of your voice as you tell me about your day, your work, your dreams.
