The Nila Series
The Nila story was created out of my love for the ocean and my unending questions of why do I exist, and what is the purpose of life.
After a winter storm, my wife and I walked the Coronado Island beach. The summer accumulation of sand had been stripped away by the aggressive waves and the sand dollars with it. Left behind was an exposed pile of rocks that required work to traverse. Scattered about the jagged stones were large pink and opalescent spiral shells. Surprisingly, many of them were only cracked or chipped…the seagulls had yet to discover the awaiting treasure. Life still twitched within each intact shell as I touched the exposed flesh. Positioning myself on a rock, I rubbed it’s outer shell with my thumb and gazed beyond the waves to watch the rough water pulsate shades of gray. The meaning of life once again drifted through my mind, and that thread easily shifted to how it might be to live in the ocean. In that instant, a Nila swam into my life, and grinned.
