There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is a society where none intrudes,
By the deep sea and the music in its roar.
I love not man less,
But nature more.
In the story Callie (main character) is pained by the changes brought about by progress on Topsail Island. Then there are other changes in her life beyond her control with which she must contend, and choices she must make--the only constant in her life has been the ocean.
WRITING TIP: To write, you must use everything--all of you.

In the broad and silky morn
The sun is warm upon my heart
And I know it won’t be long
before fated love holds my hand
And guides me to your side
I long to know your lips again
And taste the salt upon your skin
And know your thoughts as you do mine
And drink the sweet joy of us
As we swim in our pelagic love.

QUOTE: "Once we believe in ourselves, we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit." e.e. cummings
WRITING TIP-curiosity is where it's at, man--keeps the ink flowing, the gray matter glowing.

Enjoy the photo, enjoy the sunshine--lovely for November--huh?
QUOTE; I can never change my past, it's already happened anyway. All I can do is make the best of today, let go, and keep moving on.
WRITING TIP: Don't let go, keep it bottled up--it will come in handy at a later date. Everything is fodder for writing.
