I love the ocean. Not because I was born in it, or because I grew up in it and feel at home in it. But because it humbles me. It scares the shit out of me. But every time I go into it, I'm freeing myself from a little bit of fear. The water slowly peels away little layers of myself, making my life a bit cleaner every time.

– Hunter S. Thompson.
“The earth has its music for those who will listen”
“The continued existence of wildlife and wilderness is important to the quality of life of humans.”
