Planet Ocean

The SEA:

Thousands of miles from land, open ocean ground swells move silently, without interruption - without destination - with virtually no boundaries, they circle the globe of planet Earth on an infinite journey.

The sea's constant movement, unending energy, strength, calmness, spaciousness and secrets of the abyss are mystifying - A time in which the mind wonders, allowing peace and stillness within.

Gazing upon the horizon, sea and heavens come together on a never-ending journey. My thoughts go far beyond, and I too, long for that feeling of infinite, as the universe - there is no end. I'm going home, Mom and Me.

All things - Earth and the heavens - are connected - we cannot live alone.

This was a long term project, as from time to time I would find something interesting pertaining to the sea. Suddenly I look to see I have quite a collection of interesting articles.

My life has been involved with the sea. My sailing exploits, surfing, the thousands of miles logged throughout the Hawaiian Archipelago in my Eskimo Sea Kayak and its natural unique life within a gravity free environment.

Did you know a jellyfish has no brain?

The world's smallest fish, the Goby measuring 0.47 inches. After about 6 months old membranes have grown completely over their eyes and continue to grow until the eyes cannot be seen at all and their sight is gone.

And then there is Man:

Longest Survival at Sea: 1942 - Poon Lim, 25 years old, steward on a British merchant ship, was torpedoed. Found after floating on a raft in the South Atlantic after 133 days. When told of the record, he said "I hope no one will ever have to break it".
