When I swim in the middle of the ocean, I don’t have a WiFi connection but I am experiencing the most intimate connection.
In our hyper-connected world, we often forget how important it is to have some for yourself, by yourself without any interruption. Well on that end, I am one of the most fortunate person because all I have is time by myself to connect with myself and the ocean.
This is important for me because it allows me to ask so many essential questions without being interrupted. How can I better communicate what I live? How can I give the ocean its true voice?
During those moments when my mind leaves the real world and wander in my parallel universe, I sometimes hear a faint voice muffled by the sound of the waves saying: just keep on going. But it is really all it takes? I have this unique opportunity, this one of a life time opportunity to make a difference, will I raise to the occasion and meet my and everybody’s expectation?
I feel so small and insignificant in this vast ocean, this battle seems insurmountable and yet I am being reminded that this is not only my fight but one of many people.
I have never felt as close and connected to this foreign liquid universe as I am now, and I hope enough people feel this connection and our collective action will make a difference.
Real connections are visceral and don’t take place in the cloud, come down with me and protect our ocean.
