Meditation #2: The Sea

I stand in awe of it—its depth and immensity inspire wonder within me. I can watch it for hours, not looking away, just out and far into its vastness.

As the tide encroaches on our cities and towns, I’ve also seen it take away communities and lives of people I love—and it’s nearly taken away my own life on one occasion. Even at its most destructive I am captivated by its power and in it there is a kind of raw beauty that ultimately brings a rebirth.
