The Jersey Shore 2012: Dawn















About J. Thomas Ross

Since retiring from a career as a high school English and history teacher, I've been pursuing a career as a writer. My main interest is in writing novels, but I've also written short stories and poetry and done a little editing on the side. I am currently working on a Young Adult novel. One of my poems - "Winter" - won an award at the 2010 Philadelphia Writers Conference, and you can find my fantasy short story "A Rock Is a Rock Is a Rock ... Or Is It?" in the anthology Tales of Fortannis: A Bard's Eye View, which is available in print and Kindle format from Amazon and as an e-book from Double Dragon Press.

  1. sea scapes are mesmerizing. I’ve rarely seen the sun emerging from the sea. I think our stretch of coastline actually runs from northeast to south west, so the sun ascends up into the cerulian vault from Brigintine. there’s something scary about a million mile wide star escaping from the water……no land…. just a vast, cool, wetness and roiling, nuclear fussion. …And when you lay on the beach, staring up at the sky, there’s a real sense of having the WHOLE EARTH behind you, pushing you forward through space like a celestial hood ornament. …..Makes me want to run into a shady woodland with lots of green…lots of earth… lots of grass and only cute, little bits of sky…..More secure mentally speaking….. Imagine what the whales must see divorced from all the land………….I like the shore. I like everything about it…but why does the ocean have to be so big?

    • You’re right, Billy — the shoreline runs from northeast to southwest. The ocean is huge, but that helps put things in life in proper perspective.

      Glad you like the photos. More to come.
