In all the rush, all the mad dashing about, pausing to watch the endless rhythm of waves crashing on the beach is strangely hypnotic and soothing. Perhaps it’s because each wave is different and absorbs all of our attention. Or maybe it’s the sound, the sussing of water and sand that concentrates the mind. However it works, a periodic dose of the sea is a wonderful antidote to the holiday season’s hectic pace. Relax. Enjoy.
The criss-crossing patterns of foam and backrush, and a touch of exposed beach, share the lower left corner of Coming and Going.
