The subject line is originally by Jean Cocteau.
"Mon oreille est un coquillage Qui aime le bruit de la mer"
(=My ear is a shell who loves the sound of the sea)
NarrabeenI've loved looking at waves and hearing sounds since childhood. The sounds of waves are bit similar to the blood flow in a mother's womb. Could be...the unconscious memory takes me to a sea to listen to it.
Looking at ships is another fun. Retired, still working, etc, etc. Each ship tells her life long story. Quite interesting and wonder why a female gender is applied to a pronoun for a "ship" in English. Who started to call a ship in an elegant(?) manner? A romantic soul? Or simply because a sailor projected his desire onto a ship during a long journey without a girl? Imagination always amuses me.
In the afternoon, sketching in light is nice. Feeling a soft breeze, I always smile at the sea in a wharf. Silent. Quiet and peacefull.
DrummoyneFriends, when you come to Sydney, visit beaches and wharfs and enjoy serenity.
Have a nice weekend!
