The sea is within us all. It doesn’t just connect you with me. We already know each other. It’s everyone else everywhere else. Water covers the planet. Water without end. Water within and with out. The river feeds the sea. The sea is never filled. Beyond the bridge, beyond the bay. The horizon beckons, then another. The river flows into the bay, the bay into the sea. They dredged the bottom of the bay, excavated it and with the dirt they built our home. Happened a long time ago. Now the big ships can sail to our docks. People come and go. Products come and go. I drink your tea, you melt my iron ore. But the water was already here. Somewhere there’s a river you call your own. The sea is there for us all.
