Hymn to the Beach

Every day is like an expedition, if you get out of bed with an open heart and dedicated mind. Today I found a beautiful quote, that could definitely be a hymn to the Beach Books Blog where “things can be made to happen”:

“The wet stretch between land and sea is the true beach, the true in-between space. Among the peoples of Oceania about whom I write .. it is a sacred, a “tapu” space, an unresolved space where things can happen, where things can be made to happen. It is a space of transformation. It is a space of crossing.”

  3. Great photos and free verse. The beauty of the beach’s serenity was visibly clear. I, too, love the beach and especially the ocean. You can see my artwork of shore and sea on my blog. Thanks for sharing your experiences. CharityGoodwinUS.com
