..... you cannot always wait for the perfect time, sometimes you must take the leap of faith.
Facing the sun and heading into the wind, 'waters edge' is a unique, original, one-of-a-kind sculpture. This delightful vintage swimmer (complete with vintage French 'soutache' braid yellow flowers) is poised on the edge, tightening her swimming goggles, ready to go.
It reminds us of those endless summer days at the beach full of happy memories... Beach days on the golden sand. Dazzling blues and scorching heat. The thump of the surf. Hot feet on burning sand. Salty sea breeze on drying skin. The sound of cicadas.
It sings stories of a forgotten wildness, once forged as a child. Looking out to the vast ocean as the sun paints a happy face on our heart.
Recalling the childlike feeling of possibilities & cherishing the forgotten simplicity of living each day full of simple pleasures.
My wish is that, "Waters edge" will reconnect you with those fun & free childhood days and will inspire you, going forward, to live life to the fullest... 'here is to our hopes for the future, threaded with the love of the past'.
