The Sea Knows My Name

Perhaps it is because I do not live near the sea that I hear it calling me with its siren songs. Perhaps it is the lingering memories of sandy walks as the tide rolls in. Perhaps it is because my mother took me to the sea every day during my first two years of life and it is ingrained in me.

Whatever it is that makes it so ... the sea knows my name. This quotation lured me as well because it said so precisely how I feel. I like the thoughts I think when I'm at the sea, on a cliff looking down, looking into the distance at a light in another harbour, seeing the ghostly shape of ships at sea ... it's magic, mystical and mesmerising.

God did a wondrous thing when he created the life-giving force of the sea that mirrors the sky so beautifully.

Blessings on your day,

Hiya Mel-
Snagging your word art as I go here-LOL
Love the Sea one- and it's funny how it does become ingrained in you! I was born and Lived next to it my whole life ( sometimes take it for granted)- but go away somewhere inland for a while- and after a few days you miss the smell and sea mist after a hot day!
Thanks a ton for sharing these- I've snagged and bagged them-LOL

I have always loved going to the ocean. I can sit on the beach watching the waves break for hours on end and think and think and think. Thanks so very much for these perfect thoughts.
