have you ever swum far out into the ocean, and suddenly realized you cannot see the ocean floor below you? does it give you a shiver, knowing that almost anything could be below you, peering upward at your tiny floating form? a friendly whale, or leviathan, who knows.
THALASSOPHOBIA is the fear of the sea, or sea travel. it can be of the vast emptiness of the sea, the unknown things below the surface, or the fear of being so distant from land. personally, I find the largess of the ocean thrilling - and our THALASSOPHOBIA candle tries to lovingly capture the enormity of the salty ozone-tinged rippling surface of the Pacific.
