Water:the one thing I used to love as a child, now determined my fate for the rest of my life. It seems a little strange that something as simple as water could determine what happens in the future, but that’s exactly what happened.
When I was young, my parents had a really difficult time pulling me away from the ocean, as if I was drawn to it by some magnetic force that was too strong to overcome. I used to splash in the waves and dive beneath the surface to see the creatures below. I never wanted to leave my wet paradise and return to the dry land where I belonged. But just as the sun dipped beneath the horizon, I was always called back to the shore and removed from the wonderful wetness.
At first my parents had no concern about the amount of time that I was spending in the water, but as I grew up, my thoughts centered more and more upon the deep blue paradise.
