Immediately your eyes snap open. As the next wave of salt water splashes over you your eyes begin to adjust to the blinding light that is seemingly everywhere. Trying to survey your surroundings your mind slowly begins to grasp its bearings. It appears you have drifted onto an uninhabited desert island.
Climbing to the top of tallest palm tree you look in all directions to learn there is nothing but dark and unforgiving ocean as far as the eye can see. Picking the thorns out of your feet you begin the trek back down to the beach and plop yourself down on the sand.
Feeling confused and defeated you look upwards to the sky. With tears in your eyes, you see a flock of birds fly overhead and become gripped with a single emotion. Hope.
