What exactly is that Roar you feel in your soul but you also hear with your ears as you stand at the edge of the ocean? “That endless thundering motion” as one song says. I’m personally quite certain it’s the voice of something deeper calling to something deep within us . . . There is nothing more satisfying than standing there with that Roar of the ocean surrounding your soul. It’s one of the few sounds that truly quiets my mind. Regardless of how deep you go . . . anyone can relate to that!
You’ll feel found, no matter how alone you may be.
Your soul is seeking just this, whether you know it yet or not! It’s part of why standing at the edge of the ocean seems to “wash away dirt from the soul”. I don’t believe the poets of our past just happened on lines like this. They were seekers and they discovered something. What exactly did they find at the edge of the ocean and the tops of the mountains?? Where are your favorite places to seek?? What have you found or Who has found you!? Have you ever thought you’d found something and considered it to be true only to discover you hadn’t at all?? Now that is a weird feeling . . . that will make you question everything. And that is when you truly find what you were missing . . . or does it find you at just that place? I’m not sure yet and really, chicken/egg/who cares. Just a long wordy way of saying, the edge of the ocean is a great place to start if you are looking for something;o)
Look how much joy our souls found at the edge of this Texas ocean!!! yipee!! And, onto the pictures from a seriously lovely night in Galveston.
Talk about a seeker . . . you should have seen this little boy looking out so intently and snatching his prized creation back just before the thundering motion could sweep it away. He did this until it was completely dark. While I was focused on his mom (because it was technically her Mother Love session – that actual session coming NEXT), I could not ignore my intrigue over his intently focused side missions and wanted them to have their own spot on the blog.
Check out his face! I can totally relate – so focused you are distracted.
