This is the Sea

April 7, 2011

I originally started this post with a story about riding a big blue wave when by freak-of-nature coincidence a favorite all time song of mine started to play on the radio. It’s been eons since I’ve heard it. It echoed the exact sentiments I was attempting to articulate and about a million times better too. I cranked up the volume, closed my eyes, and happily let myself get swept away into a watery time capsule of great memories buried in my past. Unfortunately my story got swept away too but as was aptly put in the song: “But that was the river, And this is the sea!” Give it a listen below…I guarantee you’ll get swept away too.

365 Journal Challenge:
“Work with crayons. You can mold them, melt them, grate them, color with them or…?”
My nostrils are coated in melted crayon fumes after this little exercise. They were a complete pain in the you-know-what to make but I do think the results are rather charming.

    Wow, thanks for the blast from the past! It’s amazing how music not only provides a soundtrack to our lives, it is also a time machine. The emotions we felt when we loved those songs never age…amazing.

      I know hey?! It’s hard to believe so many years have passed since it was written. Such a timeless masterpiece.
