Joy of Life

What is it about Meditteranean places that makes them so soul-satisfying and addictive? Perhaps it's the bright sunshine. Perhaps it's the vivid splashes of color from all the flowering things. Maybe it's the broad sweep of sea, the sound of rolling waves, and the smell of salt in the air. Maybe it's the imaginative architecture, and the solidity of history. I don't know, but no matter how I look at it, the Meditteranean atmosphere never ceases to be invigorating and inspiring.

More Pools

Of course, I might have a pool like this one instead. Either way, it doesn't get much better than having a pool on the edge of a cliff that overlooks the sea.

Where Is the Sun, and Where is My Sea?

Someday, when I am rich and famous, I will own a house on the Meditteranean, and it will have a pool like this one on the Amalfi Coast. I will spend my days lazily swimming in the pool, gazing with happiness at the sea beyond, and when I get tired of swimming, I will read all sorts of good and enjoyable books while I sit in the lounge chairs on the edge of the pool. It will be a lovely existence. :)

The Best Kind of Beach

"Only in quiet waters do things mirror themselves undistorted. Only in a quiet mind is adequate perception of the world." --Hans Margolius
If my life could be as quiet as this beach, my mind as calm as these waters, and my day as peaceful as this sky, I think I would be perfectly happy.

I Am Content

"Beauty is a form of genius--is higher, indeed, than genius, as it needs no explanation. It is of the great facts in the world like sunlight, or springtime, or the reflection in dark water of that silver shell we call the moon" --Oscar Wilde

A Terrace in Positano

There is something about water that is so completely mesmerizing. I am wholly fascinated by it, and I never lose my love for it. Someday, there will be water in luxurious and copious amounts to grace my life.
