Tide time

“We go with the currents, plan around the tides, follow the sun. We measure happiness by nothing we can hold… nothing we can catch. Everywhere…Life is jumping and elusive and momentously momentary. We want to sketch the days, distill the memories, make them last. At the same time, we know that the beauty is in the evanescence. Every wave comes in, then retreats. Every day promises, then turns its back and slips away. Every joy has a little tease in it, a give and a take, and leaves a wake of longing.”

  1. You’re word are true. Nowhere else but at the sea shore do you see fishermen going fishing at midnight. My wife grew up in a small Oregon fishing village. Even though we were married 53 years ago, she still talks about her father and his tide book.

    1. I love the fact your wife still talks about her fishing days with her Dad. I can so relate as I grew up, loving the sea and fishing times spent as a family. My hubby and I spend many nights, still fishing at midnight, even if it’s just for the pure fun of it! Thank you for your visit Scott and for sharing that beautiful anecdote.
