The North Atlantic shows no mercy because it has no mercy. But time has even less. The same wave as in the February 9 post, just three seconds later. Ferocious to the end.

  1. Beautiful…this image – a frozen moment – speaks to me of the hidden power of nature…the union of H2O, a distant moon, wind, melting ice, human behaviors.. Then I must acknowledge the power of an unseen virus as it passes from one to the other. Yet, as many begin to isolate into their homes, nature begins to heal. I think after this crisis is over, there should be a global mandate that the we all have an annual seclusion retreat as we gift Earth with an annual 2 week sick leave so she can heal from our greed, our hungry ghost nature.
