184. Have a house on the ocean
Updated February 17, 2011
I’ve always felt such an attraction to the ocean. Maybe it’s because I grew up land-locked and was 15 before I saw the ocean. I remember almost feeling scared to go out into it because I couldn’t see the other side. What was to stop me from just floating away and ending up in Africa somwhere? But I got over my fears pretty quickly and played in the waves for hours.
I don’t know that I could ever live in a landlocked place again now that I know what it’s like to live so close to the ocean. On those nights when I’m feeling restless and unsettled, there’s no better thing for my soul than to sit barefoot in the sand and watch the waves roll in.
