“The voice of the sea is seductive;
never ceasing,
whispering,
clearing, murmuring,
inviting the soul to wander for a spell in the abysses of solitude;
to lose itself in mazes of inward contemplation.
The voice of the sea speaks to the soul.
The touch of the sea is sensuous,
enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace.”
~Kate Chopin

“Sing like no one’s listening,
love like you’ve never been hurt,
dance like nobody’s watching,
and live like its heaven on earth.”
