Just add water

One part clouds...two parts sunshine... 

I've always felt happiest when I am surrounded by water...perhaps I was a mermaid in a past life...or, maybe a pirate?

The vastness can make you feel small...and a little insignificant.  I read once that water is a symbol for emotions. And as I sometimes sit in silence...near the water...everything takes on emotions...the silence...the water...and all of my thoughts.

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it.  Water does."
Margaret Atwood, The Penelopiad.
