Some Ephemeral Botanical Art

Water is life. We are drawn to the ocean because it is part of us. To be near it, is to feel alive, full of wonder, aware of our endless potential. Water rushing over our feet, toes wiggling into the sand, salt spray on our face…invigorating our love for life in the purest form.
Then we are humbled by it. Crumbled by it.
Water is life. Water reclaims life. The love remains.

love + eternal cycle + the ocean

In honor of all who have been reclaimed while embracing the ocean,
and their loved ones who forever carry them in their hearts.
