From Whence We Came

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch, we are going back from whence we came. ~John F. Kennedy

I was there for less than 72 hours, yet island time was once again kairos time. I returned to the rhythm of the ocean because I had lost mine. I returned to the smell of the sea because everything was starting to smell and taste the same. I returned to gather shells that have been worn, warped, and polished by the sea and sand so that I might be more open to seeing all phases of beauty in others. I returned because I was craving sea salt and Vitamin D. I returned because the waves on my sound machine just weren’t cutting it. I returned because the waters have always called me back and carried me until our next visit. I returned because I am deeply tied to the ocean.
