    Drawn Into

    The ocean is mesmerizing -- the beach, the horizon, the winter versus summer sand lines, the sound and rhythm as it pulses the coastline. But most of all is the smell and feel of the ocean in the air. It draws me and I need to be enrobed and encapsulated by the sea, no matter the...

    The Saltiness

    and the brine on the wind the dried seaweed and the decaying crabs all make me think of the oceon and the vastness of it the cycle of life the enormity the power of the waves and the strength of the current to take a life as well as to give it

    All and Out

    It's no doubt that the sea, the beach and the ocean in overall makes us feel all the sexy stuffs; bikinis and lots and lots of skin. But then, for me, it's like spreading your arms out wide and fall into the deep, just to find yourself drowned in the sky instead. I feel free and...

    It Smells Terrible.

    By all means, it's a pretty unattractive smell, and it only ever gets worse and worse. So why do I like it?

    It's been raining for a long while so the air smells fresh and feels cool for the whole day. Chilly, yes but invigorating too. These days would be great for long strolls.
