which way? 8th October 2013

imagine............. being dropped into a vast ocean..... one so huge that you can't see from one end to the other apart from an unbroken horizon...... shimmering with spray and waves....... where do waves in the very middle of nowhere ocean come from?....... you have no boat and you're just there bobbing up and down in the water...... turning round and round hoping on the rise of a wave to see something you could aim for an navigate towards...... but each time the wave lifts you, nothing..... and more nothing.......... not knowing which way to swim....... you have a choice of every direction on the compass without hindrance, to swim into but which way?........ arms will eventually tire, legs will grow colder, muscles will fatigue, not to mention the inevitable panic of being there in the first place.... which way?..... which way will get you to dry land?... somewhere you can grab hold of and call familiar...... somewhere that has a shape amidst all this shapeless water that frustratingly slips through every fist you make...... grab, grab, splash, splash........ the sky goes on forever, and so does the water, across the surface and down and down...... which way?.... that question becomes overriding... all this water, each molecule no different from the next... which way?......
