foot-prints on the sea-shore

a thoughtful eye

“I find myself at the extremity of a long beach.  How gladly does the spirit leap forth, and suddenly enlarge its sense of being to the full extent of the broad, blue, sunny deep!  A greeting and a homage to the Sea!  I descend over its margin, and dip my hand into the wave that meets me, and bathe my brow.  That far-resounding roar is the Ocean’s voice of welcome.  His salt breath brings a blessing along with it.”

~ Nathaniel Hawthorne, “Foot-prints on the Sea-shore”
