Soul Food #116~

* My eyes are an ocean in which my dreams are reflected.
Anna M. Uhlich

There are so many lovely Ocean Quotes~

A woman's heart is a deep ocean of secrets.
Gloria Stuart

A Google search displayed so many it was hard to pick only two.

The ocean speaks each and everyone of us.. a different voice..different different times..
Never have I not loved what it has said to me.


  1. that girl gets around ;)

    i love to listen too~

  2. Ah, the ocean. It has been quite a while since she has whispered to me. I'm way overdue for a coastal jaunt. :)
    Have a wonderful Sunday.

  3. I love the ocean too and miss it when I'm away.

  4. I agree! I could listen to the ocean forever! It is so majestic and wonderful and always brings peace to my soul.

  5. Nothing beats the hear it, to inhale it! I couldn't be without it....
    enjoy my darling friend

  6. I've always lived on or near the water, Monique. Not always the ocean as I do now, but lakes or rivers as well. They all speak to me, but I can sit and watch the ocean for hours.
    Happy Thanksgiving, my friend!

  7. Being a Pisces, water is essential to my Soul - can't function comfortably without visiting water of some sort. Thank goodness the Gulf of Mexico is only 52 miles away. Judy B. Houston Tx

  8. Lovely--and very calming on this Monday morning.


  9. Thank you for your thoughts..Very few of us are unmoved the it's beauty for certain..
    To all our American Blogging friends..a very Happy Thanksgiving to you~

  10. For me the Ocean has always had deep meaning and a pull. Not sure how to explain this except I have a feeling my ancesters are sending special vibes.
    Yes Monique I do have Montosco balsamic Glaze; beautiful drizzled over fresh strawberries.

  11. I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
    To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
    And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
    And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over......
    John Masefield
    LOVELY post Monique and it REALLY resonated with me, I am a sea lover!

I just wanted to take a minute at this season of renewed hope and gratitude to personally thank you for your visits and kind words, especially with the loss of my kitty Angel.

  16. A beautiful quote! Thanks for sharing.



  17. I know that I can always go to the ocean and find calm and peace. Lovely post, Monique.

  18. We are so fortunate to have the shores of Lake Michigan nearby and we see the both the calm blue and violent crashing waves often. You wouldn't know it was a Great Lake and not an ocean for there is nothing to see on the horizon but water. No warm breezes and sea creatures, though :)

  19. Thank you for sharing the sea with me...I am listening to pouring rain come down now....I would rather be listening to the sea...
    Enjoy Monique!

  20. Ahhh, Monique, I love your soul food. This one calls to me as well, because the sea is such a part of my life. I miss it too, with its constant heartbeat of waves and wind.

    I've been thinking of you recently--I've discovered a Quebecoise singer, Linda Lemay. Her song 'Pas un mot' brings me to tears, and her "Maudites Francaises" makes me howl with laughter. You're lucky to have such a talent near you. A modern, female Jacques Brel?

    Hugs to you from Belgium.

  21. I enjoy Linda Lemay also~ We are fortunate to have many talented artists.

    Sea Creatures..I've spotted a manatee too..the gentle bears of the sea~

    Have a great day..lovely to visit with you~

    Linda you have had your share of weather reports:( I wish you a calm winter!

  22. What a luscious tart, and lovely quote!

    Your posts are always inspiring. :D
