a salty piece of land

Maybe there is another who sees life not as a flickering candle but as a torch that can illuminate an undiscovered world…There will always be those who feel more comfortable not venturing from the warmth of the hearth, but there are those who prefer to look out the window and wonder what is beyond the horizon.
—  Jimmy Buffett, A Salty Piece of Land
…there are no words to the song of the ocean, but the message is and has always been simple: not to forget where we came from. The melody is locked in the water that composes much of what we are. Most humans tend to ignore the song, but not all. You are one of the lucky ones who hold the melody in your heart.
