I just love the beach at any time of year. One of the things I like to do is early in the morning after a walk is to sit with a cup of coffee and watch the coming and going of the waves and surf.
Everything in nature seems to have its ebb and flow, its alternation of night and day, of activity and rest, the one blending with the other throughout the seasons and the centuries. A similar rhythm in human life occurs. I think that’s why I love the comings and goings of the ocean. It reminds me that each of our lives has it joys and sorrows, its successes and failures, and its ups and downs.
In the dark nights of our soul, we know that dawn will appear. The rhythm of the ocean should take all fear from us, and it opens vistas of understanding of our existence.
