The Sea, The Somber Sea

October 23rd, 2013

Tennessee Valley is my heart place. It’s a 2-mile walk along a popular fire road to get to Tennessee Valley Beach, but if I go around dusk, it’s just me and the bunnies and coyotes and owls and a few other intrepid gypsies buried in their own hoods and scarves. We generally ignore each other, because we know why we are there. To think. Alone.

Once I get there, I can see, hear and smell the sea as it crawls its way up the sand. But more than anything, I can feel it. It brings me home.

Thanks for the creative dare, Matthew Teague Miller. One day I’ll get better at using iMovie.
