There is something about the ocean that inspires me. Regardless of a storm far out at sea, the tide stills comes in, goes out, comes in, goes out… it doesn’t change. Any particular shell that washes ashore could have originated in another part of the world, but now it is here. All the while the tide goes in, goes out, goes in, goes out. It is a comfort to me, knowing that even though some things change, others always stay the same.
