    I grew up in a Caribbean household

    but live in America. I long the smell of the sea as it splashes against my bare skin on those hot and sunny days. The months I would spend in the islands surrounded by ocean, where the months I truly felt care free.

    No matter the weather, whether the sun is shining and it's hot or it's raining and cold. No matter the location, the pacific, the mediterranean, the atlantic, the indian ocean. Being there at the beach, hearing the waves roll in, smell the salt in the air and on your skin makes...

    Seriously my therapy.

    The way the waves obey the moon, how the ocean dances solely for the open skies. How the water envelops my every curve as I submerge trustingly and willingly into my love.

    I recently walked on the beach by the ocean.

    .. It is truly one of my best friends. It is always there, always comes back to me and I find it so calming and yet energiZing. I will tell my family is like some of my ashes spread in the ocean... Aaahhh .

    Whenever I am too far away from water I feel like I am literally drying out. I just love the sound of wind and waves, just love to look out into the wideness and vastness of the ocean. It just feels great to look at the horizon and feeling that when there's so much space in this...

    I own a day-hours only cove in Montàna de Òro.

    My little stretch of shoreline is one of the few places I don't have to keep look out... No one can find me once the sun sets behind the cliffs and the people leave for good.

    Every wave tells a story,

    bringing new ideas and experiences to the fore. When the sun shines, the beach is a glorious place, reflecting the sun off the water. When it is dark and rainy, it is full of anger and passion.
