"The ocean is represented as a place of bliss from the deep water through the different tones to the golden sand. A breeze is blowing, causing the waves and movement of the water. The ocean is a escape; I get to be a mermaid swimming and playing and exploring the water. I don't feel anxious when I'm a mermaid swimming in the water."
