Something truthful in the sea
The sound of waves crashing on a beach makes me feel small and insignificant.
The West Coast Ocean sounded and smelled and looked very much like the East Coast Ocean that I’m used to. But the sun was in a different place. Late afternoon, I’d look through my camera towards the ocean, and I’d be startled to see the sun shining towards me. It was like the dramatic moment in a futuristic movie when the actor suddenly notices two suns instead of one.
My husband and I sat in the sand one evening to watch the sunset.
“Isn’t that bizarre?” I asked him. “The sun setting into the ocean! I feel like I’m in a science fiction novel. Something weird and futuristic. ”
He sighed. “This was supposed to be romantic.”
