The sea then seems so damn near to me. Too near.


The sea is over romanticized. Unfortunately we need it to sail on, chasing our illusions ...

being near salt water is never good when you are in the track of a hurricane.

Re: Being near water makes you happier

Great article, really works for me that way too. Being a Swiss mountain boy I was always deeply fascinated by the sea. Wind and the smell of the sea just makes me inexplicably happy in a way a fantastic mountain vista after a long hike never can.
