Window 8: Water

In today’s window, we go underwater and explore ocean life with a curated score by DJ, Elvin Tavarez. The ocean, literally where life began billions of years ago, is symbolic for many, many reasons. The ocean itself, with its colossal depth and power, mirrors our subconscious and the idea of it simplifies the complexities in our mind, knowing we are so insignificant in comparison to something of such immensity. We know more about space than our own oceans, and to me, that’s a thought so unfathomable and yet freeing.

Each creature, each microorganism, holds an important role to the symbiosis of life in the ocean. This symbiosis extends to us and to life on land. Everything has meaning, everything has life, everything has the power to influence the next. The vastness of the ocean casts emotional buoyancy on our mind, a lightness of being, in the presence of something so inextricably large and complex. We are reminded of our minute existence, and the power of a life force much larger than us that we are yet, all woven into.

Infinite quote of the day:
If the ocean can calm itself, so can you. We are both salt water mixed with air.
