Reading & Writing a Life

“I Come to the Sea to Breathe”

Leave a comment

Yes, I do, in a way that I do nowhere else.

The water is whispering as it ripples softly, slowly over my soul.  It touches me deeply, in this present moment, and in memories deep in DNA memories.

This is Corpus Christi Bay.  This water has been a part of me since before I was born.  It was present on my mother’s skin, in her flesh and blood when she was pregnant with me here in the city where I was conceived and born.

I come here for renewal, for refreshment, as often as I can, to breathe deeply, completely.  100_0163
