‘Sea the Change’ is a phase I love, a play on word and the name of this blog. It’s much more fun to have an intriguing name for a blog, right? The word blog is dull; it sounds like…well…blah.
To me, there is more to the name than using it to be clever. The sea rules my life and yours, forming Earth's life-support system. It bathes more than 70% of the planet. Much of the air we breathe is made from tiny plants that drift along in silver-blue currents. It's home to bizarre, amazing, colorful creatures. It feeds us and provides a place for us to play, recharge and explore. So many things are waiting to be discovered in the Big Blue. And valued. It’s a beautiful, dynamic system. My happy place.
If you want to read some good books about a life with and for the ocean, check out Blue Hope and Sea Change: A Message of the Oceans by Dr. Sylvia Earle, one of the world's most famous oceanographers, the first National Geographic Explorer-In-Residence and winner of the 2009 TED Prize. I had the honor and pleasure to meet with her last week to discuss a film project that was inspired by her documentary called Mission Blue. She deemed me a "kindred spirit." I came away inspired to take chances and work towards positive change, for myself, my work and the ocean world I've loved all my life.
As for change, the only thing certain in this life is change. It’s nature’s constant, abiding force. Best to face it and embrace it, without fear, with hope and joy in your heart.
