On Sunday, the first in the year 2014 (feeling hip with my
Nigerian sense of cliché), I felt I needed to get some inspiration to kick start
the year and to bolster enough strength for the academic term for the kids as
well as for work and family. So, off to the beach I went. The vastness of the
ocean and the carefree manner in which the waves rose and fell – they always
repeat the pattern (I wonder how many eternities the energy of the water has
done this for) – reminded me I was part of something much larger than myself.
The sky and the water blended together in a whitish hue, there was no
distinction between them save for the oscillation of the water body.
“Every day look at a beautiful picture, read a beautiful poem, listen to some beautiful music, and if possible, say some reasonable thing.” ~ Goethe
"Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all.” ~ Vincent Van Gogh
" Waves are inspiring not just because they rise and fall, but because each time they fall, they never fail to rise again." ~ Unknown
