He is like the salt that is absorbed into the earth
how the air is
We often ask ourselves why previous relationships did not work. We are told that fish can fall in love with birds, but where would they live? Some people are air. Others are Earth. People who are air could be represented by this faint color palette, like chameleons that blend in to survive. They could be represented by a unicorn, a fantastic "river horse". Some free spirits have to adapt on Earth with the flow of water, because there is air in the water, but they are still more like air: eternal. Without understanding this characteristic of people who already carry dry sea salt on their skin. That in spite of love, they will end up succumbing to worldly pleasures and the comfort that the predictability of the Earth gives. Without the risk of heights. Without the risk of allowing their actions to have sound in unstable matter.
