“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), It’s always our self we find in the sea.” – e.e. Cummings
I used to be out on the ocean every week without fail. No matter what is going on in my life; no matter what hardship I may be facing, when I’m on the ocean it all melts away if even for a moment. I hadn’t been paddleboarding in months, since before my mom’s accident. I decided this weekend to take a little bit of time this past weekend to get back out on the ocean for a paddle and I’m so glad I did. It helps make the burdens just a bit easier to carry.
