Left My Soul There [By The Sea]

Today on Awakened Aesthetic, Jen posted about drawing inspiration from the sea – something that I always assumed I did inherently, involuntarily, and intrinsically as a product of a sailboat builder & racer, and an fierce lover of strange, underwater creatures – not to mention a loving daughter of the left coast.

Jen got reminded of Jenny Owen Youngs’ song, Led to the Sea, about someone being somehow attracted to the sea. It’s been kind of an ongoing thing – people can’t seem to control their love or reverence of the sea, and I’m no different. Every time I find myself on my way to some kind of water-related destination, I always think of the same song.


Flocking to the sea
Crowds of people wait for me
Sea gulls scavenge
Steal ice cream
Worries vanish
Within my dream

I left my soul there,
Down by the sea
I lost control here
Living free
