Soul Adventurer by Aaron McNulty
I arrived at the beach, when it was still dark, but anticipating an early sunrise due to Daylight Savings. As I patiently waited, I set up my gear, and got my suit on, but after all that, it was still dark as fuck. I started texting with the homies, at a different spot a bit North of where I was, and through our convo, we figured out we were idiots and had all arrived too early; a good two hours before sunrise. We realized Daylight Savings tacks on an hour at the end of the day, not the beginning. So I sat and waited. 

 

As I sat, my thoughts drifted to home and the newest member of our family, born just two weeks prior. I thought about watching my wife become a mother, and seeing a whole new magical side to her that made me fall in love with her all over again. I thought about her and our new baby girl snuggled in bed and I could hear their breath and feel the warmth. I thought about the two other little ones down the hall tucked into their bed, and I felt overwhelmed with joy and love. I felt the deepest gratitude for these gifts and I asked the Universe to continue to surround us all with love and light. I turned my head to look out to sea, and between the empty beach houses lining the shore, I saw streaks of purple illuminating the sky. I jumped out of the car, grabbed my gear, and ran down the walkway to the beach, finding a universe all to its own. Feeling overwhelmed again with joy and love, I waded into the cold water, feeling the chill penetrate to my marrow, and swam out into the endless universe of intense color, grateful for every single piercing breath.
