The sea...

Do you feel this "longing" towards the sea?

I love being near the sea, at the very least I feel the need to live near water. I particularly love a windblown, desolate beach in winter. I love watching the sea during winter and thunderstorms, all that power and turmoil. Thrilling!

I'm currently living hundreds of miles into the continent. A part of me that I miss has stayed behind, sitting at the beach and gazing the horizon, while thinking about anything at all. :boohoo:

Yes. My vacations to the coast have simply been the most relaxing and even fulfilling. While I like traveling in general, I don't get the same sort of "warm gooey sensation" in my chest that being by the ocean gives me. I can almost forget about the shitty person I am and just lose myself in my surroundings. I'm sure it wouldn't last for long, but beach trips are just refreshing. I can get some of the same benefits by a lake or river, but there's nothing like the sea.

I grew up near the east coast of the US, and miss it every day I have lived away, which is many years now. Sometimes I wonder if I should have joined the Navy instead of the Air Force.

Living in Chicago, I do miss going to the real ocean. I'm not sure I feel longing towards it; I'm not a Sindarin Elf or anything.

I don't know about longing, but it makes me feel something. I don't actually like being in the water all that much(it feels suffocating), but looking at it is a beautifully eerie feeling. It makes me feel like I'm gaming and I'm at the edge of the map, and it also makes me realize how far away everything is from me. I think everything is prettier at the seaside, from the harbors in Norway to the boardwalks of the Mid Atlantic to the idyllic seaside towns here in Maine. Doesn't matter if the beaches are icy or tropical, all gorgeous. I adore the seaside aesthetics-lighthouses, saltwater taffy, sailor dresses, anchors, submarines. It's my little dreamscape, I suppose. And sure, I'm not a big swimmer, but I love combing the beach for treasures-sea glass, cool rocks, shells, starfish, clams. So yeah, it's ironic I'm obsessed with everything that comes from the water, I just don't like the water.
