craving the sea

i wonder what this is… i wake up in the morning with diffuse streaks of dreamed ocean waves, sand, clouded skies over an endless horizon, and the warmth that comes from a lazy day at the sea. a taste of belonging on my tongue, salty and slightly bitter, but yet sending a shiver down the spine and goosebumps onto my skin, ending in that center of ME ME ME right between the legs - and i stretch and scratch my arm and heap those heavy bones out of the mattress, facing another day of duty and decaying forward into time.

what is this craving. what is so special about being connected to the sea, if only by view line, wind exposed skin and the steady rhythm of shoreline. why do you never forget the minutes when you were happy and at peace with yourself. why don't we ever forget anything… just digest, work it out, sublimate, alter and develop those concrete moments into shady, flickering, yet steadily stretched and thinned visions of what was, what will be, what isn't?

i never believed in anything being forever, but for all means practical and realistic, there is this one core inside me that won't seem to fade, glowing and liquid and mushy and always at reach, never to be touched - and i guess the sea is whispering her name over and over again, for all the sharks to hear and agree.

the sea can be very melancholy for me in a way the desert is not. although i find a connection in the vastness. the space, the horizon. that has little to do with what you said i know but that is what it made me think and say.

seems like a trip to the sea is in order for you to make more memories of happiness. you make a lovely sailor.

unlimited desert, boundless water, and beautiful women - isn't it the same longing for freedom, independence, and the immortal? :/)

what would be the use of living and experiencing things if we were just to forget them right afterwards? It all makes sense, even if that sense is not that apparent at the time (or at any later time either ;)

Ahhhh, you DO understand about the sea! I was wondering about your comment about it on my blog the other day. And here I thought it was only the desert that called to your soul. Needless to say it's "big water" that calls to mine. I always refer to it that way since Lake Michigan works for me in a similar way to the ocean. It's really just a fresh water sea... same waves, same endless beaches, same horizon of water, same sounds at night ... alas no dolphins...

Well written again... and I like the photos as well, they tell a very nice story.

Funny. I live by the sea and when the winds blowing the right way I can hear it in my bed but you have made me miss it. Guess Brighton not quite the same as this. Been too long since I lazed properly on a proper beach.

Could it be simply youth and happiness that clings to your mind? And I can very well see the attractions of it all! Be happy for your memories, at least you have those to revisit!
