Journal Entry 3/11/13. I ran away today in time in my mind. When the sun didn’t come, I sat back on the sheltered balcony and watched the clouds pour forth to wash fresh my world.
The steady din of rain upon the roof of this small place is a song, one of many that I love. The storm passes and I’m free to walk on.
All the sounds of life surround me: the wind rustling the long grasses, gulls flying low and calling to me hopeful for a crumb, and the surf, the ever-pounding surf.
The surf pushes and pulls me as I walk through its flow, shoes tied and slung across my shoulder, bare feet on sand leaving a fleeting imprint on the strand.
