as it seems… there is a you
that experiences something other
like a wave with its ocean,
or a particle of air with its vast space
as if you, the wave
join with the other, the ocean

I agree, there is a you but it is a part of a much larger whole–of others.
What an amazing photo–that teeny tiny surfer among those wild waves. It made me think of one of my brothers–an avid surfer.
glad you enjoyed…
yea, those surfing photographers get right in there. it must be fun to work with light and water for color…

thank you, waterbug (9 months ago) for your redbubble comment
I love the hint at growth in this. So subtle in its recognition of what is, but then there is this very soft, yes, uplift with the “now”.
thanks for noticing that… and for your comment
