The Sea And Me









We're friends, the sea and me. These days I live very close to the sea, but it hasn't always been the case. I have a large oil painting that is very similar to these dark broody images. It gives me joy every single day.

And from that time on I bathed in the Poem
Of the Sea, star-infused and churned into milk,
Devouring the green azures; where, entranced in pallid flotsam,
A dreaming drowned man sometimes goes down...

Images from here, excerpt from one of my favourite poems of all time - Le Bateau Ivre, Rimbaud

Makes me realize how much I need some beach time.. (I love a thunderstorm at the beach, don't you?)

We live about an hour from the beach and never, ever go, clearly this needs to change! Enjoy your weekend, dear Jules! XO!

wow love the look when the sky gets darker than the water. I am so jealous! I hope you remember every day that you are seeing pure beauty.

Gorgeous photos sweetie! I love the sea. There's nothing better in my opinion. It instantly calms & excites me at the same time. There's something so magical about it.

Have a wonderful weekend! xoxo

Growing up by the beach and still living there (how can I leave?) is one of the biggest blessings of my life! Congrats on your new life!

So very beautiful. The sea is such a part of my soul too, this really resonates with me.

Oh, I so want to visit the coast - it has been much too long. Thanks for making me realize I need to make this happen. =) Enjoy the weekend and thanks for stopping by - I am happy that I have found your blog.

Me too, and I would never wish to not live near the sea, with its sense of space and salt air and antidote to confinement. May we see your oil painting...? My walls have Karen Hollingworth seascapes, as though the sea itself were not enough.

I especially love the first sea image - the clouds are so low!
