A mysterious effect the ocean has. O a next visit,it was late in the evening and already dark. Walking down to the water the dark shadows of the lava rocks seemed to be full of looking eyes and you start to expect some strange unearthly things to pop up. I did feel "unheimish" not really at ease. But arriving at the seaside and watching the waves all fear disappeared, all thoughts disappeared, I did feel totally safe and at peace,
The sea start to give my mind some images, a kind of story develops and at night a dream of beings shimmering between human and sea animal forms, seals, sea lions and walrus showed themselves. Strange because they are not at all living around this island. I try to listen and watch more carefully.
The waves are rolling and whirling and pushing and pulling but there was a cave where the water was totally silent,showing me something of the great stillness deep down in the water. It is easy and very nice to be completely silent in the presence of the Ocean.
