Take off your shoes and walk along a beach through the ocean's last thin sheet of water gliding landwards and seawards.
You feel reconciled in a way you wouldn't feel if there were a forced dialogue between you and either one or the other of these great phenomena. For here, in-between land and ocean - in this in-between realm, something happens to you that is quite different from the sailor's reciprocal nostalgia. No yearning for the alternative - no escape from one into the other."
Aldo Van Eyre, The Child, The City and The Artist
Just thought it was beautifully written despite the fact that I do not totally agree to what he was advocating.
