We go to the sea to be ourselves. Not often in the sea, too cold, but beside it. Once there we like to keep in sight of it. We dream of living there, but would that lessen the impact it has when we occasionally visit? Probably. For now we come, and go home when our land-locked lives call us back.
These images and words blend together as evidence of such visits in each other’s company, and occasionally alone. Some of what you see or read has come into being in situ, others as dream memories. Together they form a record of time spent unconfined, in the opened air and the pressing wind, sighting distance, or observing the close confusion of what lies at the feet, or near at hand.
