Ocean Gaze

For hours I gazed into the ocean. There was no hurry. Nowhere to go. I could have done a lot, finished a lot. I deliberately eliminated hurry.

Yesterday, I was closest ever. Just a railing that separated me and this dangerous loop of waves. What was really important to me started to sink in. A strange calm. Knowing myself all over again.

I talked to the ocean like it was my best friend. But mostly I was gazing far for hours. I felt powerful. I could go anywhere, be anything. I needed yesterday to fortify all that I have come to believe. I needed the ocean.

I know now. For my next level of calm, all I need to have is an Ocean Gaze.
