…”it’s always ourselves we find in the sea”

combine seaside c rochas3 REDUX

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

(John Masefield, Sea Fever: Selected Poems)

  1. Wow… Kari… this is so good!
    Touching and strong images!
    Really like this combination.

    I like to share this quote:

    “From birth, man carries the weight of gravity on his shoulders. He is bolted to earth. But man has only to sink beneath the surface and he is free.”

    (Jacques Yves Cousteau)

  2. The ocean…who can live without it, but those born in the desert..? Your beautiful post reminded me of words from Isak Dinesin:
    The cure for anything is salt water – sweat, tears or the sea.

  3. Oh how wonderfully beautiful Kari; makes me smile. I will be at the beach tomorrow, but alas, It will not be the same. I will record a moment in time.

  4. There is ambiguity, and clarity, in the ocean’s depths – there is grace in its serene ebb and flow, as much as there is savagery in its din. It is truly a sublime manifestation of nature’s elemental power.

  5. Hi Karina, I was away from the internet for a couple of days (a good reminder that the world can breathe just as easily with or without…)

    But in the physical world, I didn’t saw anything ressembling your art.
    So, my very temporary return to the screen is good.

    Water.
    The breathing mirror of what constitute a life.
    Yet, one can non-metaphorically disappear in it.
    So, also allness.
    Commanding respect.

    I like your waters.
    Full of tasty and poetic salt.
