Aurora Collaborators: Stories of Water
Summer nights during my childhood were spent standing on (what then seemed like the world’s most massive) sea wall in my dad’s ancestral village.
The sea has always been particularly rough around there. And there were no streetlights around then.
We walked up the wall with torchlight and then stood there in pitch darkness (except when the moon was out) and all we could hear was the thunderous roar of the sea as it crashed against the wall. And the spray would hit us unexpectedly.
People always talk about looking out at sea, but my most vivid memories of the sea are around listening to it.
