Our Emotions

Emotions are the oceans within us

Cast adrift at birth

We row forth on seas limitless and mysterious

Waters of abyssal depths

Unique tides and currents

A thermohaline circulation...fed by tears

We drift forth

Destination unknown

Warm waters...and cold

Gentle swells...Tsunamis

The navigator has yet been born

With art enough to chart these seas

What can a castaway do

But pray for safe harbor?

I've had times where the only sane thing was to sink beneath the waves. Somehow, it is all okay.

Thank you, June. This entry just kinda wrote itself, and rather quickly at that.

"Surrender" has its place, SAW.

In a somewhat different, yet related, vein - I came across this passage today (the Cosmos works in mysterious ways):

"But in a way you can say that after leaving the sea, after all those millions of years of living inside of the sea, we took the ocean with us. When a woman makes a baby, she gives it water, inside her body to grow in. That water inside her body is almost exactly the same as the water of the sea. It is salty, by just the same amount. She makes a little ocean in her body. And not only this. Our blood and our sweating, they are both salty, almost exactly like the water from the sea is salty. We carry oceans inside of us, in our blood and sweat. And we are crying the oceans, in our tears."
