Rare Nature: Reflections from the Red Sea

There is no accident that I was pulled from sea to shining sea, transported from the roaring pacific blue to a reflective calm place along the shores of the Red Sea. My deepest Sankofa moments reveal how often the sea has spoken gently to my soul. In times of love and loss, celebration and sorrow, I am reminded of several quotes I would like to share with you!

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea–whether it is to sail or to watch it–we are going back from whence we came. – John F. Kennedy

The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever. – Jacques Cousteau

For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) it’s always ourselves we find in the sea. – E.E. Cummings
