Tides of Inspiration for Bloggers

StonesWalking along the seashore is my place of endless inspiration. I’ve realised over the last while that it’s all to do with the ever-changing nature of the sea and the many lines that it offers. These are lines that are full in their own right but which invite thoughts, reflections, words, sentences, paragraphs, pages …..

So many colourful stones with lines ~ not even requiring that one’s writing is straight ~ a perfect art gallery or pages begging to be filled.

And what about the horizon? That line that stretches the eyes and mind and makes one think of the breadth, width and depth of life.

And in-between are the waves ~ sometimes only the tiniest ripples, other times massive breakers carrying one along in great surges.

There are times, too, when the huge canvas of the lined sand on a beach like my precious Tramore provides the ultimate inspiration.

The certainty that that the sea with its multiplicity of lines is ever-changing brings a newness with every tide that encourages, hand-holds and sets the pen of the heart and mind free like a kite sailing in the wind.

What, oh what, will the next tide bring?

  1. great post. Superbly explains what can inspire thoughts. I think moments of peace surrounded by nature are possibly the least cluttered places in our lives, giving us room to imagine and wonder. Lovely photos to back up your post. Love it.

  2. Those colorful rocks are “jewels” of the sea..some look like fancy candies while others look like precious jewels..I love to find driftwood and other artifacts that the sea has claimed. There is nothing better than the serenity that the sea with all it’s changes brings to us, showing its personality from serene to restlessnes, and after a storm..
