“Explore. Dream. Discover.” – Mark Twain


Experiments in watercolors – Waves

Today’s experiment in watercolors comes with a quote…

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do… So throw off the bowlines, said away from the safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sail.

Explore. Dream. Discover.”

-Mark Twain

The ocean has always fascinated me. Growing up in the midwest, about as far as a person living in the USA can get from the ocean, I had very few opportunities to actually see it. When I did I was mesmerized.

The ocean reminds me that there is a huge world out there to be explored. Somewhere, on the other side of the blue, there are people just like me looking back. It reminds me that I am a small part of a much larger whole.

It reminds me that we are all connected. This water has been cycled and recycled throughout the earth for billions of years. The energy and carbon that make up my body, my bones, my brain are also part of that cycle.

The cycle of life.
