The Other Side of the Sea


When she was a girl, she dreamed of the things beyond the ocean, of strange shores and high-turretted castles, of pirates’ treasures buried deep, of mermaid kingdoms in the deep where men rode upon seahorses and blew horns of seashells.

The world told her there was no magic, no joy, no wonder, only more grey, bleak reality at the other side of the sea.

Yet some days, when she watched the light catch the waves and heard the calls of the gulls, she thought the world had it wrong.
