I’ve never felt particularly drawn towards the sea.
Never understood people’s affinity for the great blue beyond.
But now I understand.
I can see the joy in feeling the warm sand between your toes, and your hair crusty with salty memories.
I have felt the bliss of floating in the sun kissed waters of our earth.
I have played in the waves like a carefree child,
Watching the sunlight dance and reflect off the turquoise crystal clear expanse.
I have tasted the salty warmth on my tongue.
I have felt the power that is held within these majestic looming waves,
I’ve felt the sea pick me up and throw me back down as effortlessly as the wind picks up a leaf.
But I have felt like I was part of this world.
Floating in these waters has made me feel connected to this planet,
I’ve gotten to not just stand on top of its greatness, but rather be immersed in its wonder.
I have felt my time in the sea heal my wounds.
The salty waters cleansed my disillusioned ego driven mind and reminded me:
You are here by the grace of this planet. You are alive. You are blessed to be experiencing this moment in time. You are blessed.
