Have You Danced in the Ocean in the Pale Moon Light?

There is just something extremely sensual about baring your body in the moonlight and running into the ocean only to be enveloped by the cool embrace of the waves. It's elementally earthy, and brings me back to focus.

It reminds me of my childhood and lazy days spent exploring sand dunes searching for imagined treasures. I was much to young then to understand that my treasure laid beyond the sand dunes. Much to young to understand the call of the ocean to my heart. The power of the ocean that would hold me far after my childhood was over.

It reminds me of rowdy moments spent with my friends when we were older, drinking MD 20/20 or Strawberry wine watching the play of the fire leap in joy and lick the sky. I remember we felt so invincible, and so grown up thinking we knew it all. The hypnotic call of the waves awakened our other senses and we'd "take a little walk" with a blanket, and then talk to each other on the way home about "how far" we'd let someone go.

It reminds me of the birth of my kids, for while we were taught in Lamaze class to bring a picture with us for delivery - it was the sound of the ocean on my headset that brought me through each contraction. From the beginning familiar clinch in my belly, building steadily and rolling around to my back until it crashed over me and rolled away only to build again. Because I had faith in my ocean, I knew that eventually it would bring treasure to me and the waves would calm.

It reminds me of stormy nights sitting under the steady and never ending light of Sullivan's Island Lighthouse. Quietly contemplating my emotions over the current turmoil in my marriage. I've never felt closer to God than I did then. Just listening, waiting for an answer. Knowing that as surely as the light would blink out across the water warning of danger, so too my life would continue without this toxic man in my life.

The ocean when she's angry is a beautiful thing to see. The power when she slams against the shore proving her refusal to be controlled by things as puny as houses or roads made by man. Her fury, which taught me that it was ok to fight back. Her tenderness after the storm speaking to me with utter calmness. Do not be afraid, Do not be afraid...

Friday night as I stood on the shore, peeled most of my clothes off, and ran into the waves I could not stop myself from dancing...I could not stop the absolute joy that rang from my body in laughter. Round and round I twirled giving thanks once again that I am a child of the sea. Blessed Be.



I make mistakes, I am out of control & at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best. ~Marilyn

Being born in southern California and living the first several years of my life about a half mile from the ocean left it's mark on me. I'd forgotten what it was like until some 30 plus years later when I visited Padre Island. I fell in love, all over again.

Have tongue, will use it. Repeatedly.

Ahhh Karen...you need to "go home" more often.

I have an affinity for the water unlike any other, save perhaps the wind. And while I have played in various bodies of water throughout the world (and in my various homes) all of my life ... Friday was the first time in a long time that I danced in the ocean with my sister. I loved it ... and I love you for teaching me what true sisterhood is all about.

Now Saturday ... Saturday I'm gonna say that ALL of you were excitement pussies!

It was lovely wasn't it? Funny how we all teach each other the things we have forgotten...I guess it's supposed to be that way.

Saturday...not even going to argue with you - but it was still good, cold...but good.

Jeez, and just think, at the very same time my wife and I were sitting a home, a mere 12 miles away, watching television. Of course our 9 year old grandson was there with us. He probably would have gone along with the twirling in the surf and sand but the half-naked part he would have really had questions about. I'm glad y'all had a great time.

Adult supervision, that's what your lacking. Next time, call us, we'll come down and supervise... yeah supervise, that's it.


rm_impish_pixie replies on 5/25/2006 5:51 pm:
Supervision huh? LOL....and...btw...one would have to have one's number in order to call for supervision. We'd love to have you and your wife join us in our madcap adventures....

Well written post...it was easy to envision. It made me miss the ocean. I grew up in Massachusetts..used to spend my summers at Crane Beach...since then I've lived in the midwest, New Mexico, and now northern New York. Lake Champlain doesn't quite cut it. Longing to see the ocean again.


rm_impish_pixie replies on 5/29/2006 1:49 pm:
Fireslide...thanks so much for stopping by and for the sweet compliment. I don't think I could survive without my ocean...How do you do it?? Lakes are fine...but there's just nothing like the salty embrace of the ocean.

Surviving...with difficulty. When I finish school here, I'll be relocating. Not sure where I'll wind up, but I'm hoping to land near some coastline. In the meantime I'll settle for warm embraces, just not the salty ocean kind.

warm embraces are lovely too.
