the sea + its potent power

Henri is right. There is something about the ocean that makes you gasp. Even if you are going through the roughest of times, the sea has a calming power. The beauty and majesty of it is overwhelming at times. 

I remember when I went to the Grand Canyon for the first time. As I looked around at the orange rocks, and the sun setting down over it all, I thought to myself, "God is amazing, this is all so beautiful." It's one of those things that makes you forget yourself. 

The sea is like that too. 

and then sunset came 

goodnight california.
