The Ocean: a deep and vast element and vital to the planet. It holds much mystery and wonderment, less is known about the sea then the moon. every year thousands of things are discovered in the deep depths.
When i think of life i see everyday emotions reflected out on the water. Like life the ocean can be dark and dangerous and at any moment you can be overwhelmed and drowned in stress or turmoil, but then it can be bright and clear as day and everything is calm....... I think its safe to say that everyone has something to say about the sea. some hate it mainly due to a fear and rightly so for the sea has claimed many a life, some are highly respectable of it,as they understand that the moment you paddle out you are open to the oceans power and anything can happen, you have to have your wits about you "don't go out of your depth" is not to be taken lightly,. and for others like myself Love it!
The sensation of feeling the seas power wash over you, taking with it the days stresses and worries brings a soothing calmness!, even if its just for a tiny moment, its utter bliss. Though i regard myself as quite a homely fae, put me in the sea and I'll swim the hours away with ease. I'm as water baby as they come! Born under the sign of Pisces the two fishes swimming in different directions a balance like yin and yang, my planet is Neptune, Neptune being the the Roman god of water and sea (Poseidon in Greek mythology). My favorite story - The Little Mermaid! I often longed to live under the sea among the fishes and swim like them by having a fin instead of legs, But i do live on an island so not alls bad even more so when the beach is only a 5 minute walk from my home, watching the waves crash against the rocks i see white horses among the break and near rock pools i can see little lights dancing around these of course are the spirits of the sea. Here are but a few of the names that they go by. Mermaids/Mermen, Selkies, the Ondines, Nix, Sirens this list is mostly of those found in the ocean.Where ever there is water be it a fountain, garden pond, river or lake they'll be some elemental being there.
