WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sea # 3

When I think of the sea, I think of how it seems to call me, and how I could literally sit for hours and hours on end watching it and feeling one with it.

SUNNY OCEAN AND PALM

INVITATION 

The sea
Beguiles me so:
Its hue, its scent, its song,
Its movements that caress my soul.
I go.

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sea # 2

When I think of the sea I remember, with great joy and nostalgia, the year my family and I spent part of the summer on the beach in South Carolina, USA. My sister and I were very young, but the memories of that trip, which included our parents, one grandmother, and one aunt and uncle, are indelibly recorded in our souls.

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge: The Sea # 1

When I think of the sea, I think of my novel Racing Toward the Light, primarily because it was a painting of the sea by internationally renowned artist Steven Sundram that inspired the story. A print of his painting was a gift to me from some friends, and the very day I received it, I was so drawn into the aura and mystery of that painting that I couldn’t resist putting my feelings into words. Those words became the setting for the novel, and I virtually lived in that painting for the whole three months that it took to write the book.

Steven’s painting is the focus of both the front and back covers of the book. You can find many more examples of his excellent and inspiring work on his website.

You can find the book at the publisher’s website: St. Ellen Press.
