Blue azure: inspired by the sea

April 14, 2017

The sea is everything. It covers seven tenths of the terrestrial globe. Its breath is pure and healthy. It is an immense desert, where man is never lonely, for he feels life stirring on all sides.
Jules Verne

I will never tire of talking about my beloved sea; its fragrant smell, its calming sound, the feel of its gentle waters against my body, the taste of its salty water, and the memories of it all. When I had enough vision to see this beautiful wonder of nature, I would sit for minutes on end just watching it.

I can still remember those white-capped waves breaking gently against the shore; foam that looked so much like lace. The blue and green colors beyond the breakers, and the sun playing games on the surface of the water. Sometimes I could just make out fish leaping into the air out in the ocean and boats with sails of various shapes and sizes cruising quietly out at sea.

I was born as a Pisces, and even my name “Daria”  in modern Persian coincidentally means “sea” – maybe that is why I am so in love with these azure colors? 🙂 

I adore the sea! I love everything about it, and not being able to see it has not lessened my love for it. Truth be told, I would love to live by the sea but who knows what the future will bring me.

I love to remember the sea: swimming in it, playing in it, walking in it, and just remembering…

During all my trips I have gathered the best views of the sea. Some places are definetly connected with beautiful moments, some of them have been my recovering. But all of them left the unforgettable print on my memories. I want to show you some of these places, and who knows, maybe you will feel the same what I felt being close to the shore 🙂
