I'm grateful to no end that a step out of the car and I can smell the wind moving the shore. I can close my eyes and see the sway of palms I hear. Any merge into any highway leads to a body of water. I thank God that the gulf waters have turned cold because soon they will be lukewarm and ready, when I'm ready. Meanwhile, the caress of a beach breeze sets my skin at ease. I'm at ease and getting closer, as close as the ocean has been placed beside me. I couldn't imagine asking for more.
