One of these friends
I've been recently asked if I miss the sea.
To be honest, not.
I've been recently asked if I don't miss the sea. And you know what? To be honest, I don't.
Even though I was raised in Gran Canaria and have spent months of my life on the beach, I really don't feel that urge to swim in the sea or even have it in front of me.
If you live on an island, the sea can be seen as way to connect with the rest of the world or as a wall that doesn't let you out. I have always seen it the second way.
But even so, it's not that I hate it. I actually enjoy whenever I see it again. It's like meeting one of those friends who you haven't met in years but when you do, it seems as if nothing had change. You don‘t even have to say a word to make him or her understand how you are doing.
