IF: Water

Strongly it bears us along in swelling and limitless billows;
Nothing before and nothing behind but the sky and the ocean.

Samuel Taylor Coleridge

The Homeric Hexameter. (Translated from Schiller.)

Inspiration for this week’s Illustration Friday prompt: Back in the eighties, while I was landlocked in Northern Germany, I kept a calendar on my wall with beautiful photos of the ocean, to remind me of home. This was one of the accompanying quotes that moves me now as much as it did then.
