..... OR Mermaids & Sailors .... They go well together, no matter in which order I place them. These are two of my favorite subjects that I pursue in Art, Literature, Film, Music, Antiques & Collectibles and the Decorative Arts. I will be sharing things here from my collections and other items from the internet that I find appealing to me.
..... I also enjoy all things related to the "Seven Seas", which, of course is the domain of both, Mermaids and Sailors. This may include oceans, islands, ports & harbors, beaches, sea creatures, and classic sailing ships, to name a few.
..... So, relax and enjoy the sometimes wild, but always wet, world of Mermaids & Sailors !!

" Les Yeux Ouverts / Dream A Little Dream " ….. Beautiful South’s lovely version of The Mamas & The Papas classic song from 1968 ….. Perhaps there is a Mermaid ’dreaming a little dream’ of her Sailor, somewhere, so this is dedicated to her/them and to all romantics, everywhere!!
The english version is linked here (with scenes from the movie, “French Kiss”, which utilized this song):
" Secret of the Sea " ….. Artist: Anggun [Originally from Jakarta, now a citizen of France] This year, Anggun is representing France in the Eurovision-TV Song Contest … ” Secret of the Sea ” is from Anggun’s debut album (Circa 1997/8) …. Imagine, if you will, while listening to the lyrics, a Mermaid falling in love with a Sailor; then one day, the Sailor has to leave with his ship; the Mermaid then laments with these lyrics, hoping and waiting for the Sailor’s return:
Lyrics: Callin ‘cross the blue It’s all I do One day you’ll come back to me It’s a secret of the sea I’ll always love you Always I see Floating on the ocean Somewhere under the sun Your golden skin In cypress and blue
I hear Waves that come rolling in Fleetness of wings A sound is missing A sign from you
Callin ‘cross the blue It’s all I do One day you’ll come back to me It’s a secret of the sea I’ll always love you Always
I may never know Where you did go Whatever took you from here On these currents that run deep I’ll lways love you Always We would Sail into that big sky Forget about the time On the wind we would ride Watchin’ wild birds sweep and glide
I’ll linger just a little more Drifting on a foreign shore Spend my nights Waiting out the tides
Callin ‘cross the blue It’s all I do One day you’ll come back to me It’s a secret of the sea I’ll always love you
I may never know Where you did go Whatever took you from here On these currents taht run deep I’ll always love you Always
