When the sun sets

And the moon rises
The sea sparkles
And sings a sleepy song

My dear Regis... after reading this and before a 2nd read, I just sat with it in front of my eyes.. certainly, it's unique in the delivery, colorful and satisfying just to look at... but, I have a life-long, deep passion for the sea, the oceans. I was drawn to the name and I leave with a feeling of calm. Thank you.. I love this. katy xox.
