the beach

May 15th, 2006

Two weeks ago I was at the beach.

I love the beach.

I love watching the ebb and flow, the waves coming in and going out. I love hearing the water rise and fall, crashing onto the sand. I love smelling the air, the salt, the wind. I love the feel of cool ocean water running over my feet and sinking them into the sand a little bit more with each wave.

There’s nothing like it.

I miss it.

I used to drive out to the beach after a rough night at work; I’d walk beside the water until I reached the rocks and I’d sit there until the sound of the water would soothe me and remind me how small this one day was, and how big everything is.

The ocean is powerful and vast and like nothing else.

I miss the years I spent living close to the beach. I wish I lived as close to it as I used to. I wish I had an ocean I could go to whenever I felt the need for peace.

There’s nothing like it.

I miss it.
