With all the natural disasters around the world lately, the ocean is a little more hard to take for granted than usual--like it's becoming...a being.
I've heard it said that we put the earth out of balance, and that the upheavals, i.e., earthquakes, storms, wildfires, etc, are just the effects of the earth attempting to bring itself back into a balance. Interesting...
THE World is too much with us; late and
Getting and spending, we lay waste our
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid
Sea that bares her bosom to the moon,
The winds that will be howling at
And are up-gather'd now like sleeping
this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not.—Great God! I'd rather
A pagan suckled in a creed outworn,—
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me
sight of Proteus rising
from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn. William Wordsworth
Okay, that's it. I'll probably never post again.
