waters that bring you home

thoughts inspired by a friend's post today - who happens to be just across the ocean. She described homesickness that came with the view of the ocean waves, and stirred up a bunch of my own memories and waves as well. 

This one's for you, Kelsey!

The vast waters that appear to separate us are the very ones that unite us. When you look at their foaming waves and their sound causes memories to rise, remember that the waters crashing at your feet are the same ones crashing there. They're vast and great and in your favor, for their fierceness spanning the oceans deep is what connects and keeps you home.
