"at first it sounds like letting yourself die in warm water. in your home u might have a nice plant that you water and an animal you feed. you do this as a child, or being old, or anywhere in between it doesn't matter. from that you know there's the ocean out there, and that the ocean's heavier than everything uve done. if you were lucky you loved someone and went to sleep with them, and lived for a time knowing you would sleep next to them. maybe they're gone, or maybe they're still next to you, but the colors keep changing and you've never stopped being yourself. the colors always change slowly so that you can't hold them. it's like uve never seen them and that's the feeling. bouquet for the sunset uve never seen."
