I came to the coast to feel the calm of the ocean. when I arrived, she reminded me she was not known for the calm of her nature. people seek me out for my calm, but in reality, those smooth, soft days are few and far between. she sighed. deeply. intentionally. a sign that bred contemplation. once they arrive, they quickly realize the true wisdom behind my healing. I guess it is good you humans seek me out for my calm--for my comfort under those expectations is much less overwhelming, and without it, I wonder if you'd seek me out at all...her breath roared steadily; her energy swelled and dipped effortlessly and ceaselessly switching direction. transitions that cannot be foreseen without proper attention. people seek me out for my calm, but in reality, they seek my strength. found in me is a reflection-- a moment with the mirror of one's own truth. they see in me the qualities they have been missing inside of themselves. look into my vastness. allow me to show you what you've been longing to see. for a moment my dear, let me hold you; attention and soul. let me heal those hurting bones, let me cleanse your tired feet. for right now in this moment, you needn't be strong. I can be that for both of us. for I am so happy to receive you. thank you for visiting me after so long.
