I sought out the ocean to commune with Michael and my memories of him.

The ocean and surfing were always something my dad and brother shared. After he died, I sought out the ocean to commune with Michael and my memories of him. Now I am an all around water woman, and it is strange how something so intertwined with my brother's identity should also be integral to mine. Some days my body refuses to understand how the intimacy I share with friends in the water will never be something I share with Michael.
