Standing on the cliffs, high above the sea, listen.

The waves crash against the rocks, back and forth.

The ocean breeze whistles in the air.

The pulse of nature takes hold of us…

The ocean, shifting from the turbulent white spume to the immensity of the turquoise green sea, stretches out towards darkness.

Where does the night end? What is beyond?

Then, our eyes begin to adjust.

Notice a faint glow and soon, a chink of light that cleaves the horizon in two.

Is it a new day coming at the Edge of the Deep Green Sea?
