What’s On The Horizon?

August 16th, 2010 comments 12

“if you want to build a ship, don’t drum up people to collect wood and don’t assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.” Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I’m longing for the immensity of the sea. To me it symbolizes the vastness of potential at the inception of a new creative adventure, the moment where tout est possible –anything’s possible.

Les vacances of August have relaxed me into a state of yearning accompanied by an all too recognizable uneasiness. It usually appears towards the end of a “house project” -of which we’ve had six in our lives. Six times building the boat, so to speak, with six sets of before and after photos. While realizing our house dreams has brought immense satisfaction, oh how I love the open water and the limitless creative possibilities it represents…

What about you? Are you happiest dreaming or doing?

    What an incredible shot Susan. I want to be there!! Funny you should mention the sea. This is the first time I have lived away from the ocean. I use to look at it everyday in Auckland…took it all in stride. The hustle and bustle of the city is great, but the sea…that is home.

    Thanks for reminding me!!

    I’m happiest dreaming AND doing! And I’m extremely fortunate to live 3 blocks from the ocean, so I get to see its incredible beauty every day.

  • Beautiful picture… how much I miss la mer méditerranee… the sent of it, the taste of it, the beauty of it and the sound of it.
    I have to say I am happiest dreaming and doing. If I can envision then I can accomplish…

    Thank you for your lovely post!

    Hello, I am happiest dreaming AND doing too, though usually not both together as that would be overwhelming.

    Thanks for this lovely post to remind me of my dream to get a boat licence!

    Found your blog via Garvinweasel. Will visit back often.
