I have dreamed in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.
[Emily Brontë]

Baltimore, Ireland. 2013.

I find myself very drawn to the sea – the vastness of it, how the blue fades into blue on the horizon, makes such a heart-achingly beautiful canvas.

Having grown up in the Midwestern USA, I didn’t see much of the ocean until I moved to the southern coast of Ireland in 2010. Now it’s difficult to imagine living very far away from it. Part of me awakened being near the ocean, and won’t go to sleep again.
