My safe place
The place i have chosen has strong links to where alot of my happy memories are from when i was a child - a specific beach not far from where i grew up. i have chosen one specific time at the beach although sometimes this changes.
i can hear the sound of the waves crashing into each other, its an epic sound which drowns out my heart thudding.
The waves drag the stones down the beach and pushes them back up again i can hear the pebbles clinking together. its almost like they are alive watching them rolling down the beach.
i can hear the seagulls calling to each other in a methodical way, almost like they are singing together.
i can see them swooping around above me, i can see their air dance. so free and expressive
i can smell the salt in the air, i can taste it on my lips.
i can feel the wind in my face, the cool breath from out at sea cooling my flushed skin.
i cant see any boats today other than the dingys that people have been using to swim about; the majority all being deflated
its getting late, nearly ten o clock and the middle of summer - its so tranquil so calm
cant hear the real world only this world, this place is all there is.
dusk. the sun has already gone, the sky splashed with colour on the horison, pinks and purples getting darker around the edges.
its so warm still; i dip my toes in the cool water and feel my tensions washing away
this is my safe place, a place where i can feel relaxed and worry free :)/>
