Not too late for the other side

I went away for the weekend to try something I've always thought of doing. With everything self-funded, it was probably one of the most satisfying couple of days I treated myself to. I really wished for a longer stay, to have the sun in my eyes and bathe in the overwhelming layer of heat, with a wonderful view of the sea and the soothing sound of waves gently breaking against the shore. Clouds were sparse and the sky was as clear as the waters were.

These waters encapsulate a whole other world of life you don't see or bother to take notice when you're dry on land. It's so deceiving to picture the sea from where you sit, and all you see is an infinite volume of water, with abrupt changes in shades of blue further out into the ocean. Yet beneath this beauty is a hidden realm that amplifies its worth. Ironically, in this place with extreme lack of air and suffocating waters, I can actually breathe more with its surrounding peacefulness and because it is a whole lot more vibrant than this cubicle I'm trapped in. I saw a bountiful load of species of fishes swimming in schools and some of their silver scales shimmering amidst the blue. Everything there was so delicate and even the most plain looking ones seemed too precious to be fished. I didn't have to see turtles or sharks just to heighten my thrill because everything else was equally worthy. And for once, I didn't have to think about my future, worry over unfinished matters or bother using my handphone or mac. I was about completely cut-off from my world and I felt simply happy. Depressingly, you can't live that sort of life to survive. But the next time I do something like that, it'll always be for this reason.

My best friend was the most awesome company I had and I wouldn't want to spend it with anyone else. I'm so happy we did this together and extremely proud of you babe. And despite a frustrating end to a Sunday night, painfully epitomizing the start of another dreadful week, my weekend was perfect.
