“Some people find it up on a roof, gazing at a billion stars on a crystal clear night. Some people find it up a mountain, with beautiful vistas of valleys below. Some people find it on a secluded pond, or a secret hiding spot, or maybe even in a special chair, one with special memories.
But for me, I find it out on the water, sailing on a boat. It’s where I find peace and tranquility. Where everything makes perfect sense, and all my troubles disappear. My soul surrenders to it. To put it simply, it’s where I find my God. Oh, I’m not talking about religion; I’m talking about spirit… something deep inside.
Out on the water, the gentle breeze caressing my face, the warmth of the sun kisses my skin, and my eyes are enchanted by thousands of sparkling diamonds, dancing on the water’s surface. Out on the water, the air is fresh and the sounds of the sea sing out loud. When I want to feel alive… when I want to feel free… I know exactly where to go to find it.” — Sebastian Cole, Sand Dollar: A Story of Undying Love
