Inland Soul

One of my favorite things in this wayward life is the moment when the hidden ocean surprises up on the horizon as you're driving down a winding road. That's the splendid thing about living on an island... the ocean is all around you and never far away.

"Exultation is the going
Of an inland soul to sea..."
~Emily Dickinson


  1. I'd love to hear more about what it is exactly that you love about the ocean; the vastness of it? the sound of the waves breaking on the shore? Personally, when I stand on the beach, facing the big blue, a sense of awe fills me...Awe at God's creation and at how magnificent his works are.

  2. wonderful picture. I love how your words " the ocean is all around you and nver far away" even though I am about one hour from my nearest beach, I like to think this idea still applies to me. so happy to meet you via the blogosphere.

  3. @Fabienne, I love the sea with a thousand reasons... the beauty of God's creation is definitely one of them! The ocean is always on my mind, so I know it will come up on this blog quite often :)

    @sealaura, it's nice to "meet" you too :) One hour away from the beach isn't far at all! I used to live in Colorado, and the sea was days away. I really missed being close to the ocean.

  4. Lovely...just lovely:)
    I love the ocean and you are soooo lucky to live on an island~

  5. @simpledaisy I know, I am really blessed...
