Welcome to Life As a Wave,
If you have found yourself here, I hope you will stay and peruse the site. Life As a Wave began as a well-meaning blog with a vague purpose of wanting to bring positive stories from a variety of demographics. It brought you posts from a nonagenarian, a country-living mother, a sustainable farmer, and an urban young professional. As time went by, the unifying concept of most posts—Connection—became more distinct. Now Life As a Wave is being brought to you solely by me, Simone. I call myself ~~~S Wave~~~ because it reminds me of my identity and my intention here. I write with the distinct purpose of exploring connections: innerconnection, interconnection, global connection, and cosmic connection. To learn more about this purpose, visit the Purpose page.
To further introduce the blog, I would like to provide an explanation of the title and what it has come to mean to me. My father once illustrated the theory of interconnectedness to me with the metaphor of the individual waves that compose the ocean. It went something like this: we are all an individual wave—unique and purposeful—but we are also, simultaneously, the ocean. We are inseparable from each other. We impact each other, crash into each other, carry each other and form each other. The metaphor resonated with me and I began to follow my curiosity about the science behind interconnection. Curiosity begot curiosity and soon I was thinking about our connection to the multiple parts of ourselves, the plant and animal life that shares this Earth with us, and the greater “Other” that is in it all. As an active spiritual seeker and an activist for animal and environmental rights, as well as someone who places great value on self-knowledge, this idea of multilayered connection gave me a way to unify and conceptualize all these interests—all these “waves”—into one paradigm, one immense ocean of connections that is designed to support greater love and unity.
It is a great honor and adventure to share all this learning with all of you! I never knew that blogging would bring such joy!
Enjoy. I sincerely thank you for being here.
Simone, aka ~~~S Wave~~~
