Enjoy the Ocean Up Close 🌊

in #nature4 years ago

May you enjoy these photos I took at a recent day at the beach, and be inspired by such beautiful words of so many others, about our oceans.

"The sea is emotion incarnate. It loves, hates, and weeps. It defies all attempts to capture it with words and rejects all shackles. No matter what you say about it, there is always that which you can't."
By Christopher Paolini, Eragon

if
the ocean
can calm itself,
so can you.
we
are both
salt water
mixed with
air.

"She loves the serene brutality of the ocean, loves the electric power she felt with each breath of wet, briny air."
By Holly Black, Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale

"Because there's nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline, no matter how many times it's sent away."
By Sarah Kay

"There's nothing wrong with enjoying looking at the surface of the ocean itself, except that when you finally see what goes on underwater,you realize that you've been missing the whole point of the ocean. Staying on the surface all the time is like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent."
By Dave Barry

"Hark, now hear the sailors cry,
Smell the sea, and feel the sky,
Let your soul & spirit fly, into the mystic."
Into the Mystic
By Van Morrison, Lit Up Inside: Selected Lyrics
