A Sense of Calm
I am once again humbled in the presence of greatness. Spending time at the ocean has a way of making me feel small, yet makes life seem meaningful all at the same time. Much the same as Willem Dafoe's character in the movie Platoon said about the stars, there is no right or wrong at the ocean, it's just there. It's hard not to talk about it without sounding like a pot-smoking, dreadlock-wearing hippie (not to offend the pot-smoking, dreadlock-wearing hippies out there, by any means), but the simplicity of life always becomes very apparent to me when I spend time at the ocean. There isn't an amusement park ride or a Hollywood production that can even hold a candle to what mother nature offers us free of charge. I thank God for the opportunity to live in a place where so much beauty is so readily available to all of us. We are truly blessed.
