"The sea is masculine, the type of active strength. Look, what egg-shells are drifting all over it, each one, like ours, filled with men in ecstasies of terror, alternating with cockney conceit, as the sea is rough or smooth. Is this sad-colored circle an eternal cemetery?" ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882), "Voyage to England," English Traits (1856).
Early morning at the beach, the sun beginning to rise in the eastern sky. A man and his dog run near the water, splashing through the foamy surf when the waves come in. The solitude of the sea, the friendship between man and dog and the feel of the salt air on both man and beast is exhilarating; both to the runners and to those who watch.
