Every time I go out with Pippi I try to make out the fjord in the distance, check if the water is calm or wavy, blue or gray; and every time wish I was there.
So today I decided to go all the way.
I took the scooter and rolled down the hills, expecting to crash into a tree every second because the brakes barely worked, while Pippi sprinted down the road next to me. When we finally made it to the shore I started laughing and cheering because it's been so long since I've been to the seaside. I love listening to the thundering waves, watching them break in the distance and eventually right in front of me into the pebbles. The air is salty, the wind smells like seaweed, and it might not be a very pleasant odour, but it is comforting. It fills me with love and joy, peace and longing, until it feels like my soul is going to overflow and spill into the water beneath me.
I have never lived by the sea, but somehow it always makes me feel at home.
