The sea....


The first time I saw the sea, I was 11 or 12 yo. It was actually the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Although we went to Disneyland, I was totally mesmerized by the sea. It made such an impact on me that, upon my return, at school we had to write a poem on anything we liked. I choose to write mine about the sea. What can I say? It calms me, make me feel like I can do anything I want. It erases the limits I put on myself. Although I had the misfortune of not being born by a coast, I need it in my life. Without it, I shrivel up.

This picture was taken in my favorite Irish village, Doolin, in my favorite county, Clare on a cold January day of 2000.

Welcome Molly....did you know that the statue of Molly Mallone in Dublin is dubed "The tart with the cart"? One of my Dubliner ( from the "Liberties", close to the Guinness factory.) friend informed me. Is you visited my Flickr page, you must know my love of Ireland and everything Irish.
