Do you also dream of the sea?
Can you hear it’s distant call and feel the echoing absence of it in you chest.
Whenever I am too far from the shore or stay too long away,
I feel a restless urge,
To return to that vast wonder;
To stand before the waves and feel the sea breeze on my skin,
To hear the waves surge and crash upon the rocks or calmly lap at the sands,
To once again calm my restless mind and embrace the freedom and wildness of the ocean.
Illustrations and words for hand-bound book 'The Distant Sea'.
