Water Soothes the Crazy In Me

Set me down all by myself in front of a large bottom of water and let me listen to the rhythmic shoooosh.....shoooosh of waves and I am transformed.  I calm down.  I realize that life and God are way bigger than whatever problem I am currently wrestling.  It's as if the waves themselves absorb all my angst and leave me with the quiet stillness of whatever emotion remains.  Perhaps sadness, disappointment...but not lonely.  How strange...but I do not feel lonely when by water.

Unfortunately I currently live no where need a large body of water.  If I did, I would be next to it tonight letting the waves wash away my sorrows.

Yeah, it really helps

Oh do I relate to every word you said. There is no place for me like the ocean to put things in perspective and allow myself to refocus.
