This is an old photo taken in 2007, when I had to wait while my son was at his preschool. We live close to the beach and sometimes I took my alone time walked about when there was only a handful of people there. One morning, it was so gloomy. The sky was grey and the sun was nowhere to be found. Yet, I felt so peaceful and calm, not a bit gloomy as the weather. Reminiscing that moment sometime I really miss it, now that almost everyday would be a hectic one.
The song of the sea is a wondrous lay, For it mirrors human life; It is grave and great as the judgment day, It is torn with the thought of strife With love-lights everywhere, When the sky has taken the deep to wife And their wedding-day is fair– Such is the oceans mystery, Such is the song of the sea.
(from Song of the Sea by Richard Burton)
