Cold water splashes, pulsing against my body. The sun heats my shoulders. I take one step in and the ocean pulls me in for another.

It beckons. I want to float. I want to feel the waves under me, they push above.

One slams from my left and the undertow pulls me out. Farther away, my feet are gone to the fishes.

This is not what I wanted. I am afraid of being underwater. I belong above, with the sun’s rays and air. It is all too much for me. I can’t hold my breath for any longer. The waves are fighting hard, and I’m a weak oponent.

With a gasp for air I realize I’m dreaming, and I don’t understand.
