Just Imagine Living In A Shell Revisited...


just imagine living inside a sea shell with your love just imagine catching a glimpse of the moon rising over the sea at twilight and later lifting your eyes to a sky full of stars diamonds strewn on black velvet just imagine being cocooned in curves taking a bath in a hollow under a shell fountain just imagine going to sleep to the sound of the ocean’s breath waking to the same sound and glimpsing azure through a curved space feeling the gentle caress of the sea breeze on your skin just imagine the touch of your lover's hand in yours as you go padding out in bare feet past the private pool and down to the sand feeling it between your toes just imagine knowing that this sand has travelled and been shaped for eternity just imagine pausing to examine gifts of shells and corals

just imagine your love discovering this crown and placing it gently upon your head

and these sandals upon your feet

and just imagine looking down and discovering this little creature

[I'm still away from home staying with family and friends and concentrating on wellness...hence a revisiting of a previous blog entry from this time last year. Compiling this at an internet cafe and don't have access to any of my photographs or draft writings...but...I'll be back to regular posts soon. Thank you for your patience and good wishes. I wish you love, and wellness, and all good things.]

I love this post! When I was a little girl I was obsessed with the Little Mermaid so naturally I was obsessed with the ocean.

The house is stunning.

Oh, Chrisy...

This house is so ME! It is fabulous and always have the coolest photos and images to share..and I also love, love that mermaid sculpture. I will have to go check out her Etsy shop.

I've finally completed the designing and organization within my studio spaces if you'd like to take a peek.

I think of you often and pray for you to heal and feel good every day.

Have a great day,
