Buoys, barrels, and balls. It’s that time of year again.
The human body is made of 72% pure water. This is why we feel so at ease in the sea. Our bodies call us to enter its realms, be sheltered by its refreshing hugs and smouldered by its wet kisses. Give in to the scent of salt, the scent of our souls.
- Water of life
Signs of Spring
Capt. Sean Bercaw has thrown hundreds of messages in bottles into the ocean, and received dozens of responses. He talked to NPR’s Neal Conan about why, and the responses he’s gotten. At 13, he received a response from a woman in Grenada that read a little bit like a personals ad. And two bottles released on consecutive days both landed in France … But one took a year and a half, and the second took 10 years.
Have you ever thrown a message in a bottle? Have you ever found one?
