The first time I paddled across a lake in my kayak, I felt a oneness with nature like I’d never felt before. It was like I was meant to be in that very moment, surrounded by water on all sides. The water is a representation of the ebbs and flows of life, and my kayak is a representation of balance. You can’t fight the water, you have to let it guide you. Water is also calm, but inherently dangerous. If you play by its rules, it can be the doorway to a new world, but if you do not, it can ultimately take your life. It’s such an exhilarating feeling. But that feeling didn’t end once my kayak adventure was over.
