The ocean is many things; it is beautiful, mysterious, sometimes dangerous with it’s unpredictable ebb and flow. But today I have learned that (in addition to all these qualities that the ocean possesses) it is also a toy.
Let me explain; my son decided that when the waves wash into the shore it is hysterically funny.
I knew that my child liked water; what I didn’t know was that he thought it was hilarious. It just goes to show you that a child can view a natural phenomenon entirely different from us adults. We look at the ocean and we see a massive body of water; sometimes peaceful sometimes erratic, but always volatile. But a child views this body of water as exciting, funny, and strange.
Thank you ocean, for keeping my child and me on my toes.
