Beach Offerings, cont.

For all my readers who are enjoying this series of pics and comments, yesterday I found this rather prim, modest little offering, carefully placed just beyond the high tide mark –

Beach Offering, With Daisies

I think under the covering of cooked rice it looked as if there was a white dove, but as I never like to disturb these things in any way at all,  I didn’t poke around to check.  The ‘silver’  (plastic) 10″  platter is one that tarts and small quiches in supermarkets come on.  Note the daisies – denoting spring? or  renewal of life? Same sentiments I guess, especially when taken with the eggshell halves.  Winding in and around these, but hard to see, was a ribbon of paper with some symbols and numbers on it, but the symbols I could see made little sense to me.   It’s interesting that although I have little exact idea what the messages are, usually, they always ‘feel’  important there at the edge of the water.  Anyway they’re not for me and other passers-by at all, but reaching out to Imanja, the goddess of the sea herself.

All in all, this one felt like a positive message.

  1. I love this series of photos Alison. The sentiment seems so private and awestruck. Interesting that this little dove has broken eggs and daisies, perhaps signifying a new birth? a fresh start? Certainly a positive space. The color of the plate must have coordinated well with the sea.

    ps: are you entering anything into Quilt National this year?
