The Creator of the Universe
keeps creating marvellous
live encounters with His creation.T
he sea keeps wanting to come toward me
and then retreatsin a dance with me,communicating
I love you
I love you
I love you.

What can I say but
I love you
I love you
I love you
In reply.

And so the dance goes on eternally
I just have to open my eyes
and watch and listen
He is everywhere.

I live by the sea in the north of Ireland.  I have become more aware of the beauty of the sea.  It can be powerful.  It can be gentle.  It has a presence which has brought me into an awareness of the Divine within me and within the sea.  I have come to an awareness of my desire to care for this beautiful sea and to allow it to continue to speak to me. 

Bio:I was born in Derry.  As a young child I remember my father drawing me. It was my first experience of art. Before I was born he was doing watercolours of American ships docked on the River Foyle. I taught in Omagh for many years before training in Art Therapy.  For over 20 years I have been working as an Art Therapist helping young people who have experienced trauma, using art to express themselves.  Since the lockdown I have been taking my camera or phone with me to capture what captures me of the beauty around me.  I feel drawn more and more into this beauty.
