|LOVE TO WAKE UP TO THIS...|
I love these pictures. This second picture reminds me of the pier on retreat from years ago. It was actually a much longer pier and I would love to sit out there in the morning/evening and watch the sun come up/go down.
this third picture makes me want to take a long walk on the beach in the morning or evening with my coffee...
What is it about the water? Rivers? Lakes? Oceans? Something about the water draws people. Is it because we came from there originally? They have a pull.... and I really wonder why. Sitting or walking beside them seems to put life in perspective. I'm neither a swimmer nor a sun worshiper, so that's not it.
Any thoughts out there as to why this is? (We do have a history of Sea Captains in our ancestry... could it be genetic?)
Our son sends me videos of the waves rushing to the shore (in Hawaii). I love these. You can even hear the sound of the ocean. If you enlarge the pic across your screen, it's almost as if you're there. Would love to share these, but still can't figure out how to get them from my iPhone to my blog. I transfer pics easily, but apparently not videos.
Have a great Sunday! Easter is almost here! Came across this watercolor sketch the other day and loved it! It's kind of how I feel when I wake up in the morning.
*To give everyone their due... most of the pics I use are from Pinterest... great site!*
Ha! That bunny has seen better days. Yes, it's almost Easter. You can see signs of spring everywhere around here. :-)ReplyDelete
Fits then... I've seen better days too. But yes, I'm happy that Spring is here!Delete
Oh, I love that sketch! And yep, it's pretty much how I feel every weekday morning, as I scramble to get myself ready and out the door.ReplyDelete
I think waves on a beach probably mimic the sound of early life in the womb, yes? I find that soothing, but I really, really, really love the sound of a little brook or stream. My ultimate dream: to "escape to the country" and have a nearby brook that's surrounded by lush, rolling hills and leafy forests. :-)
Kim, I've never thought about that (...early life in the womb) certainly a possibility.Delete
I hope you get your 'escape to the country' one day.
Interesting question: What is it about the water? Me? Rivers don't do much for me ... they flood. Lakes are muddy and mucky. But the ocean? Maybe it's the waves, always different, always the same. Or maybe it's the horizon. I dunno. But like you, I feel the pull.ReplyDelete
Tom, I grew up in New Orleans, around the muddy Mississippi, Lake Ponchatrain, and the Gulf of Mexico - miss it all. But I have to admit that the sight, sound, and smell of the ocean has the most pull.Delete
I agree, water definitely calls to me. I always thought it was because I live in a landlocked province and I want what I can't have (here). But perhaps Kim is right, the desire is natural from our time prior to birth.ReplyDelete
I was thinking of you yesterday as I was watching the news. I hope and your family aren't in the path of any of the recent storms.
We are fine. Dark skies, rain, thunder, and lightning... but that's all (daughter had some "insane" hail - her words).Delete
I have several piers that I've been drawn to over the years, one on Vancouver Island, one on James Island, SC, and one in Gulf Shores, AL, I think water is very calming coupled with the horizon in the distance, nothing to clutter the mind. We're surviving the severe storms here, hope you did as well.ReplyDelete
Sitting on the dock of the bay, watching the tide roll away...ReplyDelete
Thank you, Otis.
A little house on a hillside overlooking the sea would be grand :)ReplyDelete
Ha ha, I am usually delighted just to wake up in the mornings. So understand that pull of the water. I cam from island people so I blame that for the draw.ReplyDelete
