052. Floating

Kevin Calisto's Day 48 brought some gentler travelling to mind, after the hustle of airports and aeroplanes and conveyors and buses and trying to go up and down (especially down) escalators when you have large bags...
Travelling by water is, I think, my favourite way to travel. I do like driving on a sunny breezy day with the roof of the car off, but travelling by boat, whether under your own steam in a kayak, or on a ferry, there is just something more relaxing about it...

The sea here is warm, and filled with life, the tall legged birds dip their beaks below the pearly surface and come out with full throats. The rope ties the prow to the shore, bowing gently, not straining to keep the boat tethered there. Everything here is just where it wants to be. If it wants to be somewhere else, it will drift there, peacefully but purposefully. But here is where it wants to be, now.


  1. I stumbled over inspiration tonight, and having posted tomorrow's entry (Day 54) already, I'm calling this Day 54 1/2. I culled some words from you and other 100 Days artists and I just wanted to let you know. Thanks!
