Most of Planet earth is covered by sea. Really, there’s no Atlantic or Pacific, no Indian Ocean and China Sea – it’s all one, big sea curled right round the world. If you stand on a cliff and look out to sea, you know there’s nobody there for maybe a thousand miles. Shout all you like but nobody will hear you. Your little voice is swallowed by the vastness of the sea.
But before you get too cold and lonely up there, shouting away on your cliff top, come down and put your hand in the water lapping on the beach. Imagine someone like you on another beach on the far side of the ocean with their hand in the water too. Imagine the sea holding your hand and their hand at the same time and suddenly you’re just one pair of blue hands apart.
