"Horizons" by Brian Oldham
This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.

Abandoning the known, finding home on the open road.

I miss waking up at a foggy beach in the very early morning, hearing nothing but the waves stroking the coast. Wandering barefoot on the cold, wet sand while being the only person at the beach still feeling everything but lonely. These will for ever be incredible memories.See the black thing laying behind me? It’s a sunstar that I haven’t noticed till I wanted to walk back to my camera. David and I saved it back into the ocean though we are not sure it survived.Self, Vancouver Island, Aug 2014
