"At home, we didn't live by the sound of a beating drum, we danced to it. We were swept away in the ocean and it's splendor, never once thinking that life could be lived any differently. We would spin and swirl and glide and dive through the ocean's layers and sang songs of the deep that echoed in our hearts. We were so naive. Oh so wonderfully naive." -Alexis Mellark
