Why write this blog

It is a way of giving my other self, my unconscious and perhaps artistic self, a way of expressing itself, and thereby helping me working things out. It is somewhat cathartic in a positive way. :)

You know it's hot when the sand burns

It's been so long since I've had holidays in the Summer I think I'd almost forgotten what it's like.

The sky is a delicious light blue with not a cloud in sight, not even a wisp of a cloud.

The sun reigns supreme and it lends everything a brilliance and colour unmatched.

The sea revels in this, casting magical brief reflections in its undulation to the shore. It's colour is all blue, from the darker, stronger, blue of the far away deep to the mild blue nearer the coast, and that particular blue-green in the shallow areas of the beach.

It's hot. You can hardly walk on the sand, it burns your feet, sitting on your towel relaxing and despite all the heat, and of course because of it, you are still drenched, in sweat, as your body tries to adjust to the surrounding environment. There's only solution: go in the sea. Swim, under water, letting its welcoming wetness refresh your body.

There's no sensation like it.
