Festival of the Solstice


The ocean heals my spirit, it is where I find peace. If I am away from it for too long I feel agitated. My father taught me to love the ocean. From the time we came to Australia he had boats, not big flash ones, just something to get him away from the every day and out where freedom and happiness lies. I wanted to scatter his ashes into the ocean but he told mum not to and I had to respect that. But I will always associate him with  being on the water.

This is so touching, Ann. I'm glad you shared it.
You know, in some countries it is Father's Day today.

Beautiful tribute Ann, and so perfect for today. Love this picture of your handsome Dad, and is that you with him? I think the sea definitely gets into your blood, even though it scares me I couldn't live anywhere else.

I'm with you Ann. As each wave hits the shore it wraps itself around any worries and carries them out to the sea.
