When you stand by the cold, dark ocean, if you watch the tide long enough, it mentally engulfs you. It takes over your mind and your soul. It seems to wash away any pain or hurt you may be experiencing. The sounds and smells take over your senses and transcend you into a world of total and complete emptiness. That is the place you need to go to feel peace. You can travel there anytime if you allow the sea to enter your soul.
I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love. For me, they are the role model for being alive ~ Gilda Radner
I remember one encounter with the sea which involved a special messenger. It was an early morning in Labrador, Canada, when the sea came a calling. I lived in a tiny Inuit village, engulfed by the cold Labrador ocean, totally isolated from the rest of the world. The messenger was my sled dog Oreo.
Oreo had gotten loose from her post down by the ocean at 4 a.m. The village had strict by-laws about dogs, and my dogs had to be chained on in a designated area by the sea. Oreo, however, could get loose whenever she wanted, and it was always early morning, just before sunrise – that magical time of the day.
I think she was the messenger of the sea, and somehow knew my soul needed to find peace. I was going through a lot of struggles at the time and I felt peace when I sat by the ocean with the dogs. My mom was dying and I could not be with her; I had a difficult job; and I was in an abusive relationship.
As I walked Oreo back to the water this particular morning, I noticed how peaceful the village was. This morning was no different from all the others. The sun was starting to rise. The water was quiet and the tide was starting to go out. When we both arrived at the shore, I bent over to tie her leash and she gently licked my cheek. I smiled and I swear she did too.
The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace ~ Kate Chopin
As I stood up, I heard a soft ripple in the water. I looked over my shoulder and saw a magnificent tail sticking out of the water. It was a large whale, and just feet from us. The dogs and I quietly looked in awe at this magnificent creature of the sea. We quietly appreciated the grandeur and beauty of the shared moment! It was mesmerizing and for a moment all was right with the world and I was at peace with nature.
That was many years ago. The dogs and I are now many years older. They have given up their rough home by the sea and now live in a beautiful kennel in the countryside, surrounded by farm land. Even though life is less stressful for all of us now, I often think of our days by the Labrador Ocean and the peace I felt when I stood there. Even though they can’t tell me, I know they remember too, that day Oreo was the messenger of the sea.
