    I am missing Greece so much already.

    .. The best part of the break over there was waking up at the crack of dawn while everyone was still sleeping and walking down to the beach, which was right next to our apartment... And while most mornings, nobody whatsoever was there. Just that alone time, right out in the ocean...

    Every Day For The Rest Of My Life

    I swear I have sea water in my veins. The happiest time of my life was when I lived at the ocean. We had a four storey house at the top of a gorge going down to the sea. Our views were unrestricted and endless. My children were at school and kindergarten. Since they finished an...

    The ocean is calming

    and the way you feel at that moment in front of it is the way you are supposed to feel every day of your life, every second of every day. Remember that feeling, always try to stay in that place. Never let anyone take it from you- it's the ground of your being.

    I like it. It gives me a sense of serenity.

    It's an escape from reality. It takes me away from the hectic city I'm living in. My mind is at peace when I just sit there and stare out into the ocean. All my worries and pain would disappear for a bit..

    I Could Sit and Stare At the Ocean All Day Alone, in misty ocean air, Amidst the shore, I sit and stare. Fathomless realms of endless blue- Reflect the love I still hold for you. A love seemingly never-ending. Ever deeper in depth descending. Dazzling in the sun by daylight...

    To me the vastness of the ocean is a reminder

    of God. So deep and imeasurable. Last time I went there it was to scatter some of my 22 yr old son's ashes. He died of drug overdose 5 months ago. His favorite song was by Florence and the Machine, "Never let me go" we played it at his funeral. I see the ocean and remember him...

    It's easy to let the mind become calm

    when under the trance of the oceans waves. It's easy to welcome clarity with sand between your toes. It's easy to get lost in the feel of the warm sun kissing your skin, melting away stress, fear, and negativity, leaving behind a blissful serenity.

    I really could. Just sit in the sand

    and stare off into the distance over an ocean. It's so pretty. Especially when the sun is setting and the wind is blowing in your direction but not super hard wind just enough to give you a cooling breeze that is inviting and makes you want to stay there forever.
