The first itinerary after my last day at work was to unwind in whatever way possible. Our first stop was in Pangasinan to do island-hopping in Alaminos. 🙂
The sea talks to you in a thousand ways.
It plays with you by gently tossing you aside, challenging you to swim farther than you ever had. It teaches you persistence by how it hurls itself back on the shore, crawling on the sand, no matter how many times it is dragged away. Occasionally, it had shown me generosity by leaving a handful of pretty stones & shells which I kept as a reminder. And this is because the sea is a living thing and no matter how much I describe it, my words can never give justice to its magnificence.
During our stay, I kept on thinking to myself how gravity is so amazing. If gravity ceases to exist, everything that we know will float into the silent cosmos. At a point, all can be enveloped by the sea and drown chillingly unperturbed. Even oxygen, the air that we are able to breathe, will hover around in space with no gravity to anchor it. We would be asphyxiated by nothingness and the Earth will dismantle with no force to keep it compact (along with satellites and other planets).
Such thoughts scare me and leave me in awe because that’s just how amazing this universe is. I am now officially adding a new category to my blog posts which is Travel! (and not gravity) 😆
I’m happy that I can finally check this off.
Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work.
