Sometimes I feel lost in a wide ocean. The world, vast and indifferent, spans out in front of me. Suddenly I don’t know how deep the waters are, if I can put my feet on the bottom or if I’m floating in a place that could swallow my whole body.
What a terrifying feeling!
At the same time, being out in the ocean means I can set sail in any direction. The sun reaches out her fingertips to my back, warm and encouraging as much as she can be scorching. Possibilities infinite above and below me, with plush sand to return to.
