Sandy Thoughts on a Rainy Day

Today was a bit of a stormy day, complete with a couple flickers of the lights and loss of the internet connection.

Much of our day was spent inside: some in stores, some sharing good food and even better conversation with friends.

Of course, we couldn't help but let our minds - and sometimes our conversation - wander to thoughts of a recent day spent at the beach, when we reintroduced Audrey to waves and sand stretched out like an endless ribbon before our eyes.

We spent our morning running back and forth between the two mediums, creating imprints or piles in the sand before the water rushed up to erase them so we could begin again. At times we stood, feeling the sand packed hard beneath our feet, other times eroding at the slightest touch of a toe, and still other times mounded against our legs, heavy and wet, and at the liberty of the waves. As we all were.

Sometimes, feeling small never felt so good.
