Selkies and Merfolk

The Sea is such a powerful inspiration for me.
Not just with the ebb and flow of the tides
-high tide around here is my favorite-
but the sound of the waves lapping,
beautiful boulders
and collections of shells, stones and driftwood...

I love the magical mystery of the deep sea.
The selkies and sea sprites,
the merfolk,
and all of the fantastical creatures associated through history's tales.

I love the shapes and textures
and the smell in the air
of salt and earth.
The sea has wrapped itself around my soul,
taken hold
and become a part of me.

(ha! I always wanted to be a mermaid!)
