By the sea IV


“So on a summer’s day waves collect, overbalance, and fall; collect and fall; and the whole world seems to be saying “that is all” more and more ponderously, until even the heart in the body which lies in the sun on the beach says too, That is all. Fear no more, says the heart. Fear no more, says the heart, committing its burden to some sea, which sighs collectively for all sorrows, and renews, begins, collects, lets fall. And the body alone listens to the passing bee; the wave breaking; the dog barking, far away barking and barking.”

(Virginia Woolf, Mrs. Dalloway)

  1. Obrigado Kari! Conheço bem essa praia quando eu ia à Costa da Caparica no Verão. Estou a viver na Ericeira que também tem praias muito bonitas e aos fins de tarde com o pôr do sol ainda ficam mais bonitas… Acompanho os teu pequeno Quarto há muito tempo e adoro os teus trabalhos! Bjos

    • …oh, sim a Ericeira é muito bela… A Costa tem a ver com a infância…é bom regressar…
      …Obrigada, Rui por me acompanhares “há muito tempo”… isso comove-me… o meu obrigada, sincero… (…largo sorriso…)
