"I need to breathe the sea." I said. He said "That sounds a lot like drowning". And I laughed because, it is. It's like drowning backwards. When miles of land become a prison. Enclosing. Suffocating. Torture. When you can't breathe without the taste of salt and water in your lungs; the wild ocean winds controlling your hair. When it's gotten into your bloodstream - the rise and fall of the tides an addiction you cannot shake.
