Before we left the dock I thought of home. Whenever I returned home, the emptiness sunk in and I'd long for my sea legs. Sea legs take a while to develop, at first the sea sickness gets a bit too much but then one day you get so used to the rocking motion, it becomes comforting. And as you fall asleep at night in the middle of the ocean, you feel like you're being held in a giant, all encompassing rocking cradle. After an extended time period away, when you first go back to dry land, the steadiness beneath your feet is deceptively strange. Solid ground feels like it should be moving and technically speaking it is, the earth hurtles through space at 67,000 miles per hour. That initial step on dry land gives you the sensation of feeling that gargantuan journey the planet makes through our cosmos. When I return home I am comforted in the knowledge that I will return to the steadfast sea for my next adventure through the time space continuum of salt water and stars. [Cecilia Garcia]
