Pining


I’ve never been a lake gal, even though for many years I lived near to Lake Champlain in Vermont. I love the ocean; the smell, the sound, the rhythm, the power, the ever changing light. I feel both a sense of peace and energized when I am at the tide’s edge. Living so far from the sea is hard. The ocean is a big part of what draws us back up to Mount Desert Island again and again and again.

We haven’t been home a week and already I miss it.

I hear you! I also love the beach! And, although the beach is within a 10 minute drive from home for us, we don't spend nearly enough calming time down there. Still, it's good to know it's so close, to know that we can visit it whenever we chose. Personally, I couldn't imagine living anywhere away from the sea...

Rivers, I'm a river girl. I miss the rivers of my youth, most have dried up from the droughts. sigh.

Wow! That picture captures everything you described in your post - so serene. I love living near the beach. Couldn't live without it - it is so nourishing for my soul.
