"Our Shared Wonderous Oceans..."
For our shared International Oceans Day...
“The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach”... H. Beston
“Faith is knowing there is an ocean because you have seen a brook...”. W. A. Ward
“Limitless and immortal, the waters are the beginning and end of all things on earth...”. H. Zimmer
“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch, we are going back from whence we came...". J. F. Kennedy
“One drop of water helps to swell the ocean. … None are too small, too feeble, too poor to be of service. Think of this and act...”. H. Moore
“Ocean is more ancient than the mountains, and freighted with the memories and the dreams of Time...”. H.P. Lovecraft
“Oceans are a mighty harmonist...”. W. Wordsworth
“The least movement is important to all nature. The entire ocean is affected by a pebble...”. B. Pascal
“In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth...”. R. Carson
Hiking on such secluded beaches, writing so many ponderings in the sand.
Words about wild places we have experienced, notes for ourselves about being here, and then where we now want to journey.
Stories in the sand of who it is we each want to become in those moments. All ways to beach scribe by an ocean, to journal in such a wonderful way...
Another means for envisioning our adventures, while gazing out upon both the waves and such sandy musings in time.
Now while standing very still, and looking out over oceans of dreams and desires, seeing our scribblings once more in the sand, being caressed and moved by the winds gentle breezes.
These ephemeral ponderings become hopes for our wanderings yet to come.
Now we are listening more closely, to the murmurs of the waves, for they also respond to our words and their echoes.
Long coastal beach hiking adventures, with sandy words that now become paths and trails, they speak aloud of the potential and promises we feel, so very deep in our hearts out there..... DSD
