"I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each./I do not think that they will sing to me./I have seen them riding seaward on the waves,/Combing the white hair the waves blown black/When the wind blows the water white and black./We have lingered in the chambers of the sea/By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown/Till human voices wake us, and we drown." ~The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Elliot

"Always keep your mind as bright and clear as the vast sky, the great ocean, and the highest peak, empty of all thoughts. Always keep your body filled with light and heat. Fill yourself with the power of wisdom and enlightenment."

~~ Mom, Dad, if we still lived by the sea I would walk right in. I have no fear of the sea or even of death, not if I know I will see you on the other side of the veil. I miss you so. xox ~~~
