something of the ocean

I read this morning that we have explored, mapped, and observed less than 20% of the ocean. I say “we” because I’m part of the species, along with you, that measures these sorts of things. We’re part of the family of beings that delights in the vastness of what we have yet to experience.

It’s a little bit wild to think that, though I myself have explored quite a bit less than 20% of the ocean, I have experienced something of the ocean.

Now, in this day, there is an ocean’s worth of moments to encounter. The vastness is humbling. We probably won’t get to all the depths before the suns sets on our present endeavors. But let’s not let that keep us from reveling in the opportunity to take a dip.
