My travels over the years have taken me around the world. There was a moment when I was on a boat crossing the Visayan Sea on my way to the Island of Cebu in the Philippines. I was 14 years old and it was early in the morning, the sun not quite up and I needed some space. The boat was packed with people and even back then I needed my time alone. I made my way up from our cabin in the lower levels of the ship out to the deck. I wanted to get a clear view and it seemed the only way was to get to the front tip of the boat. I crossed the line beyond where passengers were meant to go, tripped on some piles of rope and made my way across the slippery deck. It was worth it, standing in that spot just at sunrise I could see nothing but ocean and a few small Islands off in the distance. I felt the wind and morning sun on my skin with a mist of sea water and the barrier between myself and the universe just melted away, I became one with all. That was the moment I knew that the Universe was an unlimited place and that absolutely nothing was impossible.
