Photo Journal/ Travel Theme: Multiples

Ailsa’s Travel Theme this week is Multiples. I thought that this would be a perfect time as any to share a few underwater photos taken by my husband quite recently.

Multiples at the Underwater World, the World’s Largest Oceanarium, Singapore

“It is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance that is in this Earth; and many of the Children of Ilúvatar hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen.” 
― J.R.R. TolkienThe Silmarillion

“I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.

Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
The cold and sparkling silver of the sea –
We two will pass through death and ages lengthen
Before you hear that sound again with me.” 
― Sara Teasdale

The break of waves on farther shores that thought can find.

The silent thunders of the deep.

And from among it, voices calling, and yet not voices, humming trillings, wordlings, and half-articulated songs of thought.

Greetings, waves of greetings, sliding back down into the inarticulate, words breaking together.

A crash of sorrow on the shores of Earth.

Waves of joy on–where? A world indescribably found, indescribably arrived at, indescribably wet, a song of water.

― Douglas AdamsThe Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
