“I Must Be A Mermaid…. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.” That is the quote that started it all. Stuck in my head because it spoke to my soul, I dove in and five years ago began this page, and this journey. It really had nothing to do with or about mermaids. It was that great fear of shallow living and the need to fearlessly dive deep that drew me to begin sharing my heart, my thoughts, my words. It is hard to fathom that five years has passed, that the rushing of the tides and currents have been carrying me forward, however rough or calm the waters of life. There is definitely something about the water, and being in the sea…. there is something about the ocean air and the spray and mist. It is what grounds me. It is what anchors me. It is what saves me.
