Portal to the Deep Blue Sea

To this day, nothing has driven me in my life and my work more than my love of the sea.

When I came to New York after graduating from Kahuku High School I couldn't sleep at night without the pounding of the waves on the sand. I longed for the Pacific the way I longed for my family. I am always homesick for the ocean.

Through every heart break, and every outside stress, through every personal and public tragedy I have faced, nothing ever heals me like the reassuring calm of the sea.

In all of this, I hurt to hurt the Ocean. I love the sea. I long for an end to the disaster in the gulf.

The oil spill's casualties are far reaching. We all need to do every little thing we can to protect our way of life and our sea life.

The mermaids are doing their fair share, it's up to us to do ours ;)
