I went on a cruise last week with my parents, sisters, and their boyfriends. On the second to last day, I was standing on the balcony of my cabin, taking pictures of the ocean. As I was looking at the water, I had the idea of a character in a story who would be known for “naming the waves.” It seemed like a poetic, artsy kind of quality, and I thought I could use it in a future piece.

The other day, I googled the phrase “naming the waves.” Right now, I’d like you to go to google, copy/paste that in, and click “I’m feeling lucky.”
