The Oceanids Emerge In The Waning Days Of Summer

Two Oceanids on some unknown shore enjoy the last days of summer.

The Oceanids were sea nymphs, or to be more precise, they were among the three thousands daughters of the Titans Oceanus and Tethys. These lovely creatures inhabited different bodies of water, whether they be springs, lakes, seas or oceans. In our modern world, they usually make their appearance in the late summer, when the last bursts of warmth and sunlight bath the northern hemisphere. Once the weather turns cooler, they will disappear to different and secret haunts.

Despite our modern, technological and historically ignorant world, there are still many mysteries to be discovered and explored, and the world of the nymphs remains one of those.

Lovely and Loving Wood Nymphs

During the heady days of summer, one may see many things. Here, for example, are two lovely dryads (wood nymphs) enjoying the pleasures of love. If we decide to take a walk through the woods on a warm August afternoon, we may sometimes see a single wood nymph, but seeing two together, and locked in such an erotic embrace, is truly a wonderful surprise.

Ah, the delights and beauties of summer are always endless!

Happy Summer Solstice

The summer solstice, the day when the sun is at its highest in the northern hemisphere, has always been one of celebration. Today we enjoy more daylight than at any other time during the year. And beauty such as this is best appreciated bathed in the brilliance of this day’s seemingly eternal light.
