...the beautiful sea

...hello sea fairies!

i am learning
that whenever i can visit the sea,
i must try and gather a piece to bring back
so that it may tide me over when i can not be there physically...

on the days that you visit the Pacific sea
 you never know how it will be

calm? clear? cold?

to enjoy your visit,
you simply must accept the not knowing...

the unpredictability

i visited on my birthday
and on this day ~
here was the view from my soul...

as i spent a small bit of time pondering my life's journey thus far

i could hear my beating heart
melding with the rythm of the waves...

and all that was contained within me



out onto the warm, soft sand...

the sea affects me this way...
drawing out of me visually,
what i can not express with words

i leave here humbled,
washed anew
and full of inspiration...

as i gaze out upon the majesticness before me

i am grateful for each moment

and look forward to the creative out pours of the salty sea air...

as i walk along the ruffled wave shoreline
and gather these pieces

~ these memories ~

i am always amazed at the beautiful "bouquet" of images
 they make upon my soul

and as i carry these precious gifts home

i feel that for a brief time
i have been carried away to wonderful dream

my heart smiles big

for i can not wait to share these treasures
with all of you :)

sharing this musing with

* sending out love and healing prayers to all those effected by the hurricane on the Atlantic coast *

here's to gathering dreams!


  1. That was beautiful Rosemary. I had actually just hopped over from etsy and there you were at the top of my dashboard, I had just 'liked' your flower carrier on your shop site!
    They are gorgeous, t. xoxoxo

  2. Hello Rosemary! Thanks for sharing this lovely post. There is nothing lovelier or more tanquil than the sounds of the ocean waves and the peace it brings.


  3. How dreamy and what a wonderful way to spend your birthday:-)

    I thought the same thing...."summer snowflakes".


  4. Oh my, what an amazingly inspirational and beautiful post!

  5. Fantastic white post! What a lovely dreamy way to spend the B'day:) HWW!
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  6. How utterly sublime, Rosemary. I feel much the same when I visit my Atlantic coast shore. There really are no words that can truly express how it makes me feel, but I certainly caught the emotion in this lovely post.
    Thank you so much.
    The sea is beckoning me...
    I will answer back one day next week.
    Blessings, and thank you for sharing your soul!

  7. Drawn into your ocean visit like a moth to a flame. Gorgeous images and always soothing here at Ozma of Odds.

    Hugs, Rhonda

  8. I miss walking along the ocean's edge. Your beautiful photos took me right back there.


  9. Dear Rosemary!
    Again such beautiful images!
    Thanks for your e-mail, I'll answer soon.
    Wonderful day!

  10. I LOVE the Ocean... when I was a child we were fortunate enough to live on Cape Cod for a few years and I have many fond memories of being so close that we could smell the salt water from our apartment. Your Photos are enchanting and I love the Carrier you created.

    Blessings from the Arizona Desert, where we have miles of Beach and no Ocean. *winks*... Dawn... The Bohemian

  11. I feel the same way. I wish I could wake every morning to walk on the shores of the Pacific. Your sea flower bag is lovely.
