Maquenda

I've lived on a boat for 16 years and each summer I would swim with my siblings. My brother was always the first to jump into the water because with every first swim of the year, I would be afraid to jump in. Probably afraid of the fact that I couldn't see what's hiding underneath the surface. :P

I still fear the deep dark waters but I'm also greatly fascinated to know what's in there. Especially deep down the oceans where there's no light, expect from the animals who live there. :D

I imagine Maquenda also fearing the water but more daring and curious to take a look at the beauty that is hiding there. I think she likes the water, as she is like a bird and aren't fish called the birds of the sea sometimes? :D
Not making much sense with my rambling I know..:P
