Inspired by Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass poems, ‘The Beauty of this Earth and the Majesty of the Sea’ commemorates the absolute magical stillness of walking the shoreline at dawn and dusk.
During residencies in Mayo and Kerry, I have been fortunate to enjoy topping and tailing my days by walking in solitude at the shoreline. My mind may be full or brittle but the constancy of the tide eases the free-flow and soon, with no effort on my part – my breath keeps time with the tide and my thoughts harmonise – or dissipate. Inevitably, I am struck by the stillness and the absolute magnificence and majesty of nature, the earth and the sea – and my own absolute insignificance.
