To the sea and back

“It was a shore that knew the magic and mystery of storm and star. There is a great solitude about such a shore"...

"The sea is a mighty soul, forever moaning of some great, unshareable sorrow, which shuts it up into itself for all eternity…"

"The woods call to us with a hundred voices, but the sea has one only—a mighty voice that drowns our souls in its majestic music..."

We live on a blue planet that circles around a ball of fire next to a moon that moves the sea, and you don't believe in miracles?


"The woods are human, but the sea is of the company of the archangels..."


The sea... it is always yearning, sighing for something it cannot have...



Do you belong to the sea?



We had such a wonderful unforgettable amazing time...  sweet company, awesome buffets, amazing service, extraordinarily serviceable people from all over the world, awesome programs, dancing to reggae music, learning how to cha-cha, miraculous sunrises and sunsets, perfect beaches, crazy hair braids, huge iguanas, ancient Mayan ruins, lunch at the beach, formal dining, dress up nights, Cozumel, Mexico, Belize City, Roatan, Honduras, Kriol, Mestizo, Garifuna and Maya influences... dear husband, dear children, my sweet, precious darling light of my heart girlies, all of us together, what more could one ask for?  My heart is full... full of gratitude and thankfulness and so so thankful to be back at our darling little white cottage, where fall has beginning to gently settle in, and where roses are fading away in sweet amalgamations of subdued beautiful colors... trees acquiring gentle hues as the woods whisper a new hushed song... I love it all, and I'm so in love with life and with my surroundings and to be able to enjoy everything at every moment of day... what a blessing this is.  

Thank you to all of you my dear readers who inquired about our safety at sea, and who missed me here as much as I have missed you!  Love you all!

  2. So glad you had a wonderful experience on your cruise. I love the way you describe the ocean. The magic in the realm of water is so different than that of the earth. There is almost a heaviness of the unseen below the surface that calls to you in its serenity. Of the four aspects of nature I am drawn to the water and earth. Welcome home.

    1. Yes, the sea is a mysterious powerful thing... but not for me ;). My heart had been captivated long ago. I am a girl of the woods.

  5. Good to hear from you. How wonderful to spend that time with family. I loved the moon picture at sea. Did you see the eclipse? I love the regular moon more. What was your favorite port? Did you buy treasures? Did you have a window or balcony? Oh. I'm so full of questions, eh?

    1. Oh was there an eclipse? Didn't get to see it. My favorite port was Cozumel, Mexico. Humble people that always try to please you. I made a friend, Elsa, the owner of one of the little shops on the Mayan ruins....

    Welcome back to your little white cottage. It's always wonderful to go away but there's no place like home.
