I long to be in the ocean, feeling the water swirl up around me as I descend. Diving and snorkeling have been a soothing distraction these days. When I enter the underworld of the ocean I am immediately in awe. How could I not be distracted by the beauty? And the silence. I love it.
As a child, many of my drawings were of mermaids. I was obsessed with them. I wanted to be a mermaid or at least be able to breathe underwater. Sometimes I still daydream of being a mermaid.
From the surface, you would never know what lay beneath the water. Once you enter, it’s a completely different realm. I want to live there.
