Ten Things I Have Learned About The Sea – Lorenzo Fonda

Lorenzo Fonda’s video Ten Things I Have Learned About The Sea is truly moving. The haunting soundtrack sets the tone for 10 minutes of dreamy reflection.
Adobe Senior Product Manager John Nack commented that he once seriously considered joining the Navy NROTC and still feels a deep connection to the sea. He notes that the screen you’re reading this on and so many other things we use in our day to day lives all floated on the ocean to get to us.
I’ve always been drawn to the oceans. When I was in high school my mother threatened to fill up my room with water and lock the door if I got one more aquarium and it was a challenging decision for me not to pursue a career in marine biology. Having sent decades photographing the ocean and spent months at sea I still can’t tell you everything about it that attracts me or all that it means to me, which is probably one of the reasons I keep returning to it again and again.

    A very thought provoking video. It seems to me, as I watched it, that these ten things can be applied to most aspects of nature. Be it the great mountain ranges of the world: the Andes, the Himalaya’s or the Rockie. The vast deserts on our earth from the Namib, the Great Victoria or the Sahara. Even the vast tundra at the top and bottom of our Earth. It seems the rain forests, the arctic, the mountains and yes, the oceans all will lure us into oblivion and all know something, many things, that we don’t.
