The Ever Changing Ocean

Bob took these photographs from Schoodic Point near high tide this morning. I sketched a bit with colored pencils. The ocean is dark today, but just when a wave breaks it has a patch of the most beautiful turquoise. I want to bring back that turquoise moment in my mind as summer turns to fall and fall to winter.

  2. From Wordsworth to you:

    "To them I may have owed another gift,
    Of aspect more sublime; that blessed mood,
    In which the burthen of the mystery,
    In which the heavy and the weary weight
    Of all this unintelligible world,

    Is lightened: — that serene and blessed mood,
    In which the affections gently lead us on, —
    Until, the breath of this corporeal frame
    And even the motion of our human blood
    Almost suspended, we are laid asleep
    In body, and become a living soul:
    While with an eye made quiet by the power
    Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
    We see into the life of things."

    This picture of you is . . . "in my memory locked."

  3. Thank you so much for sharing Wordsworth. His words help express this life changing experience.
