Just a few thoughts on the sound of the ocean, some power the water draws upon us. The feeling of relaxation the gentle and comfort that it gives all
“Why do we love the sea?
It is because it has some potent power
to make us think things we like to think.”
- Robert Henri
In general we love the sound, the touch, the smell of the ocean. We enjoy the feeling of being close to the power of the sea.
Never mind that our body is 60% water and our brain is over 70%, yes there is a connection to how empowered we feel next to flowing water, albeit the ocean or the river, or a stream that we stand in to fish.
We love to ski through frozen water, skate on a rink of water that is iced over. We throw snow balls and make snow angels.
We don’t cherish the same emotion with saw dust, or gravel, or boulders of stone. We don’t relish the trip to a desert to play in the sand dunes.
But put sand by the beach, and we sit for hours not to soak in the sun but to listen to the waves take more of the land back into the sea.
We love that sound, we enjoy those waves touching our feet.
The sound and touch of water.
We love the long hot baths, we enjoy the soaking in salt for our tired feet.
We embrace the taste of water, iced over on a hot summer day.
“When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come,
I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out
with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise,
and imposes a rhythm
upon everything in me that
is bewildered and confused.”
- Rainer Maria Rilke
A wave machine has that effect, so do home videos from the beach trip, oh the sound of the ocean, the touch of the waves.
Oh how we long for thee.
The fall weather is here but the ocean still crashes in to the shore.
Taking back some of the sand dune, but still giving its love for all.
Enclosed or attached a video I hope you can relate to any day of the week….
It almost calls your name…asking you to jump in, to play and share in its beauty.
“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me)
it’s always ourselves we find in the sea.”
- E. E. Cummings
