The Sunshine in your face , the wind blowing in your hair , the sand between your toes.
That’s all you hear when someone “talks about the beach”
But I feel like as if those are just the outside observations a typical person makes. I don’t think one really knows the way of the sea. The way I see it, is so much more than just sand in your toes and the wind in your hair. Its soothing bliss in the air , the swooshing sound the water makes to show you its alive.
The water can be calm one moment and chaotic the next. And I think that’s the best part. Knowing that its not going to be calm at all times because nothing is the same at all times. and that is something we all have trouble realizing, we are all stuck in this bubble where we go through life thinking everything is going to remain the same. And the sea pops me right out of that bubble. It wakes me up from life. We get so carried away in the normalities of life that we are sleep walking and we don’t realize it. The sea has this way with me , it wakes me up and I feel calm, I feel happy, I feel as if all my problems disappeared as the bubble popped when I woke up into reality. I am no longer sleep walking now, my mind is cleared from all problems I thought I had.
The way I see it is that the sea is my home. And as a child of the tides you can’t help but to be in the presence of the sea , you must return and always return until you no longer can. Home is not where you come from , its where you belong and I surely believe I belong in her presence. I must return till the day I am no longer able to. Until that day comes I will be her child that returns to her..
