The Sea

Sometimes I forget the blessing that it is to live by the sea.

That for many people, seeing that great expanse of water is not an everyday experience.

This morning, it was all sunny blue skies and wind, and I turned a corner whilst out running and was faced with a blustery, choppy sea. I just smiled. It's so easy to forget the little blessings, to forget that ocean-side life is not the norm.

So I'm thankful for where I get to live.

After all, I'm in easy walking distance to the sea, a cinema and a book shop. What more could I ask for?

Robert Frost
The heart can think of no devotion
Greater than being shore to the ocean-
Holding the curve of one position,
Counting an endless repetition.
