About Sharon, the sea and life
I’ve only lived in Knysna since the end of 2019, but I’ve had a love affair with the sea for as long as I can remember. I’m in love with the expansive blue of the sea. I love the pure emotion of the colour blue: silent, still, calming, expansive- What a privilege to wake up to that every day.
The seaside landscape reminds me how life is ever changing, constant in its motion, constant in its movements of birth, death and rebirth…and the futility of me trying to control events.
Constant fluid rhythms, back and forth, up and down – spiralling waves knowing and releasing, understanding and letting go. And in this space of in-between, the ocean invites me to rest, to linger…but this takes courage and I have to lean into my own vulnerability.
Each time I walk down to the ocean a new landscape emerges. If I walk with yesterday clenched tightly in my fists, I will not sense the wind today caressing the palms of my hands… (Adapted from M. Zuccaro)
These lessons from the ocean is at the heart of my sessions as we engage in conversations towards enriching your narrative.
