Not surprisingly, I have always been inexplicably drawn to the ocean. Throughout my teens and twenties, the first place I would go when I was stressed or sought to be alone was the ocean. The sound of the waves calmed me, the blue ripples soothed me, the vast horizon reminded me how small I and my troubles really were. Interestingly though, the Pacific Ocean has a far more powerful pull on me than any other ocean. But why?
Though I hope we can come to understand humanity's draw to the ocean, I am currently satisfied with knowing that I always will be drawn to the ocean.
