As such, I took an awful lot of pictures of nothing but water - some came out okay and some came out not well at all but on days like today where life can be a major source of agitation I find the pictures to be relaxing and that's where this post comes from as I sought a sense of peace from the sea. I think it worked ...
“The fishermen know that the sea is dangerous and the storm terrible, but they have never found these dangers sufficient reason for remaining ashore” - Vincent Van Gogh
“`Wouldst thou' - so the helmsman answered.
`Learn the secret of the sea?
Only those who brave its dangers
Comprehend its mystery!'”
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“The loneliness you get by the sea is personal and alive. It doesn't subdue you and make you feel abject. It's stimulating loneliness.” - Anne Morrow Lindbergh
“May your joys be as deep as the ocean, your sorrows as light as its foam.” - Author Unknown
"The sea possesses a power over one's moods that has the effect of a will. The sea can hypnotize. Nature in general can do so." - Henrik Ibsen
