and the sea breathed salty


seven things that make me happy-


the ocean... 'ye waves that o'er the interminable ocean wreathe your crisped smiles'
-aeschylus

freedom... swimming beneath a soup of stars, howling in the wind, dancing barefoot on the wild grass

tea... there is a great deal of poetry and fine sentiment in a chest of tea.
-ralph waldo emerson

love... the sweet wine of life


photography... the capturing of an emotion, a dream, a fleeting moment in a tangible image


friendship... that beautiful moment when you find someone with the same words written on their soul as you

books... 'a book is the only place in which you can examine a fragile thought without breaking it, or explore an explosive idea without fear it will go off in your face. It is one of the few havens remaining where a man's mind can get both provocation and privacy.'
-edward P. morgan

  6. I agree with all of these but most especially sea/friendship/tea/books :)

    The quote about books is amazing. I copied it down. It captures the magic of books very well.

    Nice blog :)

  7. Most definitely seven of the best things in life. Somehow I associate them all with eachother. Freedom & the ocean. Love & friendship. Books can encompass all of them.
    I'm so very very glad to have found your blog <3
