The image is mostly surfing but I know next to nothing about surfing or have any interest in it so I’m going to focus on the emptiness that is the island in the distance.

I am an island. I prefer to float alone in the sea letting the world pass me by. I don’t make waves. But they crash into my shores anyway. And then one day I erupt and my explosion rocks the world around me. I guess I’m more like a Hawaiian Island.

I don’t let people in. I never had to. Now I’m seeing the necessity of it. How I’ve been missing out. Build a bridge? I think that’s what I’m doing – building a bridge so I’m not just a lonely island out in the sea battered and alone.
