Gazing at The English Channel from the South Downs

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me),
It's always our self we find in the sea.
~e.e. cummings

I so wish this image came close to representing what we actually saw today!! The blue of the sea and sky is quite bland compared to the reality. So sad that you cannot smell the Hawthorne or the wildflowers or feel the white petals of the Hawthorn brush your arms as they fall to the ground, blown by the wind on their way... or hear the sheep bleating in the distance... or the bees buzzing...

Dixie and I walked a little over an hour to get to this view. We were both overwhelmed by the sheer beauty, the warmth of the June sun and this glorious land called England.

We returned restored and confident that all things are possible, that all dreams come true.

Oh, and a little tired...
