Sea fever


I’ve never been a great swimmer, but I do love being near the water.

It’s the edges and margins that attract me, rock pools in particular. If the creationists can forgive me for a moment, it’s easy for me to imagine how life got used to being increasingly dry as it moved up from the comfortable pool, to the splash zone, and then fully on to the shore.

If the evolutionists can forgive me for a moment, it’s easy for me to imagine that God left the rock pools until last so that he could take time to enjoy the beauty of the diversity and intricacy of the life forms there.

The little boy who used to wander along the waterline with a stick like a magic wand isn’t so very far away. I’m still entranced by the magic to be found along the edges of the water and the land and the day and night.

Manifesto
19. Every day make time for yourself.
20. Every day say thank you.
50. Every day has an ending.
