Every time we walk along a beach some ancient urge disturbs us so that we find ourselves shedding shoes and garments or scavenging among seaweed and whitened timbers like the homesick refugees of a long war.
The ocean certainly does give us a feeling of carefree wonder, where we can cast our cares and run with joy ins our hearts. Finding solace in the rhythm of the waves, the sounds of water lapping on the shore, the vastness that lays before our eyes all bring hope to our heart and a song to our soul.
Here are a few more of my ocean related photos to bring you a refreshing break to your day. Many of these in this Ocean Series 2 are taken in Jupiter Island and surrounding area and West Palm Beach in mid to Southern Florida. Some are in Fort Pierce, lower central Florida.
As it is almost mid-March in Ohio, and today it snowed enough my kids didn’t have school, I am missing my time in Florida. The warm, therapeutic sand, the hot sun, the cleansing salt water, the air of a calmer, simplier life. I hope you find as much center in your life from these photos as I do.
“Just as the wave cannot exist for itself, but is ever a part of the heaving surface of the ocean, so must I never live my life for itself, but always in the experience which is going on around me.”
~Albert Schweitzer (German medical missionary, 1952 Nobel Peace Prize, 1875–1965)
The weather looks to be finally breaking from all the winter storms. Almost 60 degrees today in Ohio is certainly giving everyone hope from their cabin fever. It is just making me miss Florida–the warm sands, therapeutic rays, saltwater, and its air of relaxation. Here are some photos from Florida that I took that I love, maybe it will give you some inspiration today too!
