The way we define the ocean defers from one person to the other. That's why it's essential to show how I feel. As I enter the ocean, I hold nothing more than a fin, mask and a snorkel. 

The ability to hold my breath under water is a habit that I've enjoyed from my child hood till today. This is my testimony, about the beauty of the underwater world that we as humans know little about, even until this very day.

Breath is a journey for our senses.
