about the beach...

....i went to the beach yesterday.

it was beautiful.

but the wind was a-blowin'.

and the waves were a-churnin'.

and the ocean and me had a knock-down, drag-out fight.

but i am a pacifist.

this is to say..

it was the ocean who knocked me down and dragged me out.

dragged me out good

so today, two days, after-the-fact...

i am still finding the most miniscule of sea shells plastered all over my body...

in the most unmentionable of places.


i love the beach.
