Dover In Minimalism

Paul-ChongIn June of year 2013, one of our last destinations in UK is at a beautiful coastal city called “Dover”. We arrived at our hotel facing over the peaceful shore of open blue skies over the water. This was after a long and tiresome journey of travelling from city to city in the pass two weeks. We had anticipated and decided that our last stop should be a pleasant and relaxing break by the seaside before heading back to London city.

The way in life of Dover Coast is a lot slower compared to the time when we started our journey. The atmosphere is calm and the locals are friendly. In the daytime, we could feel the gentle breeze of the wind blowing over our face while the sound of many lovely white seagulls can be heard hovering over us. The skies are just fascinatedly pure blue and reflecting over the open ocean like a huge mirror. As we sat along the bench, we could hear the gentle sound of the coming tide beating over the shore. The ambience is just soothing and brings comfort to the heart. Tiny little boats can be seen sailing across the distance horizon as people sun bathed along the shore nearby.

“Blue, always the color of virtue.
It is foremost pure, and pleasing to the eyes.
It’s like one facing the mirror in stillness,
reflecting the true quality of an inner soul.
It takes you to the memories of sweet pastime,
and forget the bitterness of hardship and toils.
It is an inspiration of hope and life,
like food that nourishes the soul.
For the beauty that lies beneath,
she awaits the wise who will finds it.
Hence, it is life that’s worth to be cared,
For wherein stillness and quietness there it’s found.”
