Sea Stories- Story Submissions Accepted. Updated May 14, 2018


The sea has always been like a church to me. I feel God’s presence all around me and the cool sea breeze blowing through my hair and kissing my face. The sea whispers its song of serenity in my ear and feels like a warm hug to my heart and soul.

The crisp sea air always blows away the “cobwebs in my mind” and I find solutions to problems I could never seem to any other way.



At the time this page was created I envisioned people from all over the world sharing why the sea is special to them and stories by the seaside.

Now on Friday, February 12th, 2016 there are over 2,430 followers on Totally Inspired Mind from about 100 countries monthly tuning in, and 94,717 views.

If you’d like to share your “Sea Story”, and sure why the seaside is your favorite side to be on, simply email Paulette motzko at totally inspired PC at In the subject line put see story submission so I can be alerted to it since I get hundreds of emails daily, and that’s not kidding.

Also, if you photographed any images that would make the story come more alive, this include them and say who photographed them.


Thank you world for walking along life’s journey and standing beside me cheering me on.

I got the idea to create this segment on Totally Inspired Mind to enable YOU, my now 1,183 followers who read what I write and hand-select, to share your “sea stories.”

What exactly is a Sea Story?

It is a story from your personal life that is drawn from your personal experience or observed while you were at the beach or by the sea. I don’t know what you see on your end, if the reply box allows photos, but I hope it does.

I will be adding one of mine very soon that I remember from years past that I wrote on when I was a Contributing Writer on EPILEPSY: Information and Insights, called “King of The Mountain.”
I was writing about that topic when nobody else would touch it with a ten foot pole. They had saved all my stories last time I looked, I will have to see if they’re still there.

“Your Sea Story could be a poem, a Haiku or a fantastic memory that you create for all time in words etched on “computer parchment.”
I give you Sea Stories, on July 21st, 2014 when Totally Inspired Mind just clocked in at 40,005 views for all time and 1,183 esteemed followers.

Thank you today to these countries who have read my words and enjoyed the photos I shoot and create.
