The feeling of being underwater is tranquil. I've always loved being submersed in it's embrace. Apparently I was meant to be born in water, but couldn't because I was being difficult. I learnt to swim at a young age; it was on a sailing holiday in Turkey that my parents threw me into the sea without arm bands in faith that I'd work it out. Which I did. The immense nature of the sea and what it represents makes for a very spiritual space. The sense of weightlessness makes you feel at one with it all yet so aware of your effect.  I have come across many a thought, many an idea, in the sea.
