“Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore.” Andre Gide
It is odd to be landlocked. We are so much apart of the Earth, the flow of ebb and tide. You grew up surrounded by mountains, to move away to the Sea. I too moved away to the Sea- opposite sides of the Great Oceans that cover the globe. So glad you got to say Hell-o to the Pacific. I think of moving sometimes, not knowing as much as I miss those Mountains, could I ever live landlocked again? Perhaps, some day.
