The ocean retains stories and is rich with memories, still it preserves enough space for the moments that are yet to come. It nourishes the soul with the calmness it possesses. Even though it´s beauty can be sublime, the ocean has an element of fluctuating unpredictability and with it comes danger. The beauty of the ocean is in the uncertainty, because the ocean is generous but also quick to take. The ocean is a force of nature that should always be respected.
