At the Beach With Kathleen Johnson

When you read this, I shall be at Cape Hatteras, sleeping with the window open so I can hear the ocean all of the time.  Finally!  I miss that sound; when I need to calm and center myself, I remember the sound of Atlantic breakers cresting and booming. 

Perhaps Kathleen Johnson hears the same.  Her Encrusted series was inspired by the effect of the ocean on metal objects.
