I close my eyes as the tangy salty ocean breeze fills my nostrils & rifles through my hair. The constant dull roar of the waves lull my senses into a sonorific stupor. I have always loved the seaside. It brings back childhood memories of countless hours of frolicking through the waves, back in the days when our greatest worry was when our parents would tell us to get out of the ocean.
I literally thought that I had an out of body experience, in retrospect! I swear, in the midst of my Thai massage, I felt myself suspended in that limbo state, that twilight zone between sleep & wakefulness. I was aware, yet unaware,almost like floating in space. It's hard to describe it. I could feel the masseuse applying pressure & kneading my stiff muscles; and yet, I couldn't hear, smell or feel anything else. I guess I must have attained "relaxation nirvana", for lack of a better description! Aaahhh...it was wonderful...
Will post pictures once I get home & download them into my computer.
