Things unknown What you were taught to fear Can share space with you Peacefully
It’s crazy having multiple dance coaches invested in my success and crazy to have real friends who seem to be too. I feel like I’m out of hibernation or waking up for the first time in years or something. It has been wild.
A midnight parrot fish amongst friends. I'd never seen the blue and black beauty before. Knowing that in some places sea life still flourishes, sustains me. And as I get older I cherish my time at the sea more and more. Nothing is guaranteed. Nothing is given. Every day is different, especially at sea.
