Sea of Love

Long lost images from my Fourth of July weekend in Montauk. Montauk Point Lighthouse is one of my favorite places in all of Long Island. The sea here has so much richness and texture and tonal ambiguities to it. Each rock and pebble tells a unique story. Together, layered upon each other, their stories weave in and out like something out of a dream. I can't take my eyes off of any of it. 

The way the water looks and feels here is so romantic to me. Both calm and eager. Held back yet bursting at the seams at the same time. It reminds me so much of one of my favorite Cat Power songs. If you follow me on Twitter (or Spotify), you'll know how much of a Cat Power fan I am. When I get nostalgic, Cat Power is the first thing I turn on to match the melody of my mood. I have recently made a point to start practicing this one song on my dusty acoustic guitar that I am actually quite lousy at playing, just so I can strum and sing it for the boy that I will truly fall in love with someday. 

Come with me 
My love to the sea 
The sea of love 

I wanna tell you 
How much 
I love you

Do you remember 
When we met, that's the day 
I knew you were my pet?

I wanna tell you 
How much 
I love you

Come with me 
My love to the sea 
The sea of love 

I wanna tell you 
How much 
I love you
