Where the wild things are …

WHERE THE ARAMOANA WILD THINGS ARE (C) LE MASH 2018

So living at the cold beach this year has given me ample opportunity to photograph the hell out of the general vicinity. I am a total sea girl, not just water, as in a lake, the ocean is my thing. Lakes are nice, and yes I know the big ones can get all gusty and moody now and then. But the sea, oh me oh my, I love the sea.

When it’s a bad work day – the sea. When it’s a bad kid day – the sea. When it’s a bad hair day you may as well go visit the sea and sit a while and get the wind swept look good and proper.

Since living and working on an island off the coast of Brisbane, there has been, for me, a sense of calm and peace restored by looking at the sea. This bit of sea is about 160 steps from my current front door. Isn’t she a beauty. No wonder I paint her. 

When I sit by the sea there is the combined effect of the sea air, the wind, the vastness and the tranquility. I just feel myself go ‘ahhhh’. Some people run, some people drink, some people write away the blues, some people climb mountains, shoot tar (like a goat kinda sorta) or tweet, for me it’s the sea.

Numerous studies suggest a greater sense of well-being is created by living by the sea.  Agreed. I am a sea girl, always have been, always will be. Cheers, Le
