Relief, A Photograph

“Where the waters do agree, it is quite wonderful the relief they give.”
  – Jane Austen

Tomorrow I am leaving for the warm desert of California for a long weekend getaway.  This morning I walked my trusty dog alongside the frigged water near my house.  A contrast in landscapes – One warm and dry and one cold and wet.  I’ve decided I like them both, if not for their mere contrasts alone.  I’m not sure I could ever live permanently in the desert though.  Although I am far more a land lover than a sea lover, I need it near.  I need to see it.  To smell it.  To be a part of the “relief” it gives, however it’s done…

    “I need to live in a city that has mighty oceanic waves nearby. Probably I’d be mildly happy if it was close to a sea, or even a lake, as long as it’s large enough to merge with the sky on the horizon.”

    As my quote shows, it’s not uncommon this need of yours to have the sea near.

      You’re correct once again – it is extremely important to me, the land lover, to be near to the sea
