Finding one's happy place in life is essential for sanity... a place to where you can escape even if it's just for a moment in your mind. My place of tranquilty is the ocean.
I am lulled into a calming meditative state with the sound of its rolling waves crashing rythmically along the shoreline. The coolness of the salt air on my skin and the warm sand beneath my feet envelope my senses and become accupressure on my soul. I close my eyes for moments at a time and breathe in slowly, deliberately. My breathing soon begins to echo the rythm of the waves. I open my eyes and gaze across the endless waters and imagine all of my worries floating out to eternity.
I become one with the sea.
