The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever. Imagine a life of adventure, treasure, and earthly pleasures. Many have fallen under the spell of a nomadic life at sea. However, the sea can be as deadly as it is beautiful. And there are many untold difficulties aboard a ship. What happens to a man consumed by wanderlust, who is unable to set off on his journey?
Not everyone dreams of the pirate’s life, but many can relate to the constraints of ordinary life. Work, family, and other obligations become the priorities, while aspirational dreams are set aside for another time. Sea Song begs the dreamer to keep their vision alive. The shipwrecked sailor vigilantly watches the sea. He prepares for his journey and doesn’t give up hope. In the same way, a dreamer should constantly look for opportunities to follow his heart.
The sea is full of wonder and magic. It breaths and moves in its own way. One must set sail without knowing whether the journey will be smooth or turbulent. Similarly, the creative person cannot wait and plan forever. They must set off on their path without knowing the results. After all, life is about the journey, not the destination. Life is full of tiny bursts of bliss, greatly divided by trivial things. Return to the sea, and follow your bliss.
