AM: we are on the day of the ankles and the representation of the seas and oceans for our mother Gaia.
Me: that beautiful blue color that gives the planet a unique distinction.
AM: a beauty without equal. And what do the seas and oceans represent to you?
Me: first of all, I have a lot of respect for them. Their immensity, their beauty, their bravura, their peace, the species they shelter, and above all, being the scenography together with the sun, of the setting of perfect sunsets, make the ocean in my most treasured memories.
AM: and that’s why thinking about those sunsets where the sun is reflected in the blue water brings you peace, serenity, a moment of relaxation and recharge your batteries.
Me: It is my cable to land, to the center of my being.
AM: You have been able to be in different seas and oceans sailing, and always in moments of relaxation and pleasure, so everything is linked to a very pleasant perception of what they represent.
Me: Sailing the Atlantic coasts, in the Mar del Plata area, or in Brazil, in Ilhabela, as well as in Miami, or in the Fiji Islands, or in the China Sea, in HaLong Bay, have been some of the most beautiful things I have experienced. Although I know that the oceans and seas can be very rough, and for that reason I have a lot of respect for them.
Sailing in an inter-island boat in Fiji we ended up getting caught in a storm that formed suddenly, and I must say that the boat was moving. I thought it was pretty funny at the time. We had been fed while we were sailing, and in my case, I had no problems, but a couple of Australians who were with us started to get sick and it didn’t work out so well for them. Then more followed, and the thing was that seeing them nauseous infected others. It wasn’t my case, but for some people, the swaying of the boats ends up being a problem for them.
AM: And what does the depth of the ocean mean to you?
Me: I must say that it gives me a certain fear. On that same trip through the islands, we stopped at a very small, paradisiacal, and tiny island with white sand and an elevation of rocks and lush trees that made it the perfect island. The point is that the boat was about 150 meters from the island, and there was the option of going in a boat or swimming to the beach. Since I like to swim, I jumped off the boat straight to the beach, and it was very nice, because the waves took you to the beach, so I quickly got there. We stayed there for a couple of hours enjoying, and then, when we got back to the boat, I decided to go swimming again.
The thing is that the clear water made the bottom clearly visible, where you could see different species of fish swimming around. But as we got further away from the beach, it got deeper, and darker, until you could see everything was a deep, dark blue.
AM: I mean, you felt like you were in the middle of the ocean.
Me: I hadn’t realized before that the bottom dropped so steeply, and the first thing that crossed my mind as I was swimming were the strange creatures that might be wandering around while I was swimming.
AM: and the image from the Jaws movie started popping up repeatedly as you swam to the boat. And the music…
Me: I didn’t get to feel harassed on that level, but I can tell you that I did start swimming faster and faster, because I didn’t like the idea that something could suddenly appear from down there.
Obviously, I got to the boat, got on and relaxed. The idea was to go to another beach, but the storm crossed us and changed the circuit and we had to go back to Malolo LaiLai, which was where we were settled.
AM: quite an experience.
Me: but the most beautiful thing of that day was arriving at the island and a radiant sun appeared between the clouds, which was descending on the horizon, and ended up transforming that moment into a unique sunset. Clouds of reddish, fuchsia, violet, orange, yellow tones, and a huge sun and going from yellow to red, with a color of water that went from blues to greens and with the reflections of the colors of the sky, I felt I was in Eden itself.
AM: a gift you will never forget.
I invite you all to watch the video of Matias with the theme of the day.
Finally, I encourage everyone to engage in conversation with their own I Am, to listen to what we each have to say to each other. No one else but us can re-signify our own being!
