“Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun.”- Miguel Angel Ruiz
Visualize walking a cliff side footpath, fringed in lightly scented flowers.
Close your eyes. Allow your imagination to conjure up gentle sea breezes that seem to sweep your soul clean.
Imagine that your troubles are a boat, cut free from its mooring. Allow them to drift on a sea of serenity.
Let your darker thoughts be warmed by visions of sunshine and then…refreshed.
In the Abenaki language, Ogunquit means “beautiful place by the sea”. Despite this quaint village’s metamorphosis from fishing cove to summer beach resort…despite the addition of restaurants, galleries, museums, golf, kayaking and more…Ogunquit has held true to its name.
Ogunquit is a place of personal healing, and renewal, in the rise and fall of tides. It is a place of joy, as song emanates from the roaring waves, call of seabirds, laughter of small children and from delightfully raucous piano bars. It is acceptance, equality, peace and adventure. It is, indeed, a beautiful place by the sea.
Have you been to Ogunquit, Perkins Cove or Cape Neddick’s Nubble Lighthouse?
