I had the gift of growing up near an ocean. It both terrifies and soothes me. I’m not afraid to jump in or go on a boat far from shore where land is no longer in site.
However, if I let my mind, I can feel a bit of a fear or panic want to rise up. Then I shut it down. The wonder of it all far outrides the terror. I like to think I have a healthy fear of the ocean.
It’s a natural wonder, the ocean – ever changing colors, ever changing motion and emotions. It is full of underwater surprises.
